  • Siyeh Pass 2022

    Siyeh Pass 2022

    Alpine meadows, expansive views, a glacier, and a creek that tumbles into blue/green pools over red rocks all await on the Siyeh Pass Trail. While we like to do this hike when Preston Park is full of flowers, hiking it later in the summer yields less insects and more huckleberries. After a little bit of […]

  • Climbing Mt Jackson 2022

    Climbing Mt Jackson 2022

    Of all of Glacier National Park’s sublime summits, only six of them crest over the 10,000 foot mark. Mt Jackson, with its long, rounded ridge is one of those summits and it is as rewarding as it is a long grind. While you could (and probably should) break it up into two days by camping […]

  • Pitamakan – Dawson via the South Shore Trail 2022

    Pitamakan – Dawson via the South Shore Trail 2022

    The Pitamakan-Dawson Loop is one of our favorite hikes in Glacier that we try to do once a year. With the North Shore Trail of Two Medicine Lake closed, we ended up having a slightly longer day doing the South Shore Trail. We donned our running packs to do a faster version of the hike […]

  • Reverse Garden Wall Trifecta 2022

    Reverse Garden Wall Trifecta 2022

    The traditional way that we’ve done the “Garden Wall Trifecta” (climbing Bishops Cap, Pollock Mountain, and Piegan Mountain) has been starting at Logan Pass, climbing them in the order of Bishops Cap, Pollock, then Piegan, then coming out via Lunch Creek. Since we only had one car, we decided to drop bikes at Logan Pass, […]

  • Climbing Whitecalf Mountain and Kupunkamint Mountain

    Climbing Whitecalf Mountain and Kupunkamint Mountain

    Straddling the divide between the St Mary Valley and the Cutbank drainage in Glacier National Park lies a great ridgeline. We had already climbed Divide Mountain and we decided to take off and climb both Whitecalf Mountain and Kupunkamint Mountain. It was a big, beautiful day full of epic views, perfect weather, and all the […]

  • Cosley Lake Looning 2022

    Cosley Lake Looning 2022

    The Belly River area of Glacier National Park is such a fantastic background location. We headed out to do Common Loon surveys at Cosley Lake and Glenns Lake which is up in the Mokowanis River drainage. Perfect weather, wildflowers, big mountains, a roaring waterfall, and pristine lakes (with not TOO many mosquitos) made for a […]

  • Scenic Point Spring 2022

    Scenic Point Spring 2022

    The hike up to Scenic Point in the spring frequently delivers bighorn sheep and sweeping views. With few options that don’t involve copious amounts of snow travel, we set out on the trail and got both the sheep in the views in spades. This spring has been cooler and wetter than in the past few […]

  • Avalanche Lake Spring 2022 Bike and Hike

    Avalanche Lake Spring 2022 Bike and Hike

    The forecast called for a lovely spring day on Kristen’s birthday, so we decided to load up the bikes and head on up to Glacier National Park to bike, then hike up to Avalanche Lake. On the west side of the park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed at Lake McDonald Lodge. When they’re not working […]
