Dragon's Tail - August 17, 2017
The group shot! Mount Reynolds is the big mountain in the background. The trail starts at the Logan Pass Visitor Centre.
We are having our snack break. The visitor centre is to the right, Hidden Lake is off to the left, destination straight ahead!
Dragon's Tail! Looks cool huh?
Fun facts: Dragon's Tail is 8450 ft above sea level, we made an elevation gain of 1800 ft when we got to the top! This is part of the Continental Divide! We logged 9 miles on this trip.
Fun place for a great pose by Marilee!
Marilee's oldest son Clark joined us on this trip!
This is one of my very favorite photo's that I've ever taken!
I loved this hike, we were able to get so high to enjoy such great vista's! I'm so grateful!
Piegan Pass - August 21, 2017
We hiked to the top of Piegan Pass to watch the Solar Eclipse. We could only see a partial covering of the sun, no problem, we were happy to see what we did!
We all have our sun viewing glasses on and are we ever in Ahhh!
It got cold up there, Laura is warming up her hands? Or is she frightened?
A marmot! Lots of wildlife this year!
Just to document that I was here!
Triple Divide Pass - August 31, 2017
The group shot! Bad Marriage Mountain in the background! (What a name) I'm glad I'm able to hike with these fine folk!
Laura is in this picture! This tailhead is at Cutbank Ranger Station. A few miles south of St. Mary's in Glacier Park. This trail isn't used as much as it's a bit farther away with 5 miles of gravel.
Sue Ellen Nielson and Marilee posing under duress!
Are we there yet? It is 7.2 miles from the car to the Pass.
Views on the way up! Medicine Grizzly Lake under Razor Mountain. Love the red!
Just a fun picture! I should have taken my backpack completely off!
Just a cool rock! Almost looks like a foot print!
Oh we finally made it! Triple Divide Peak!
This is the only peak in the WORLD where 2 Continental Divides meet at its summit causing water to flow into 3 seperate oceans. The Atlantic Ocean off to the left, The Arctic Ocean off to the right and the Pacific Ocean behind the peak.
Lunch! Always a highlight of any hike!
Fun Facts: 7397 ft above sea level, 2380 ft elevation gain (from the car to this point, no wonder we are tired!) By time we got back to the car we logged 16.1 miles! It didn't seem like we would ever get to the car! It was a joyous occasion when we finally got to put on our sandals!
This was a great hike!
