The second and third days of our Continental Divide Trail trip in Glacier, Renee and I went walking through a gorgeous painting. How can the peaks jut up at these incomprehensible angles? How can this possibly be real?
|Above Medicine Grizzly Lake.|
|Carved by glaciers|
|Taking a break, we finally sit quietly and watch the lake ice melting before our eyes as wildflowers dance in the breeze.|
|Renee spots goats and sheep at Pitamakin Pass|
|Marveling at how fast the mountain goats run across snowfields at Triple Divide Pass.|
|Despite the new bear spray and binocular accessories, I've still got pretty much the same look.|
|Water and green amid the burn|
|Even the burn has a beauty I wasn't expecting. How life has recovered.|
|Bear grass and regrowth|
|A way across|
|Evening at Red Eagle Lake Campsite|
We hiked on the CDT in Glacier National Park on the Pitamakin Pass Trail from Oldman Lake to Altlantic Creek Campground. Then, over Triple Divide Pass to Red Eagle Lake Campground.
Date hike: June 28-29, 2016
