By getting a last-minute reservation at the back-country Granite Park Chalet in Glacier National Park, we were able to make this wonderful hike the first part of a two-day spectacular combination hike using the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail on the second day. The scenery and some wildlife encounters made this one of our favorite hikes.
Today we met some friends to do a couple of short, popular hikes in Glacier National Park. We had fantastic mountain views, wildlife, and waterfalls. So far, after two days in Glacier, it's rapidly moving up our favorite National Parks list.
