  • 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 […]

  • Four Mile Trail, Glacier Point, and the Panorama Trail

    A breathtaking tour of Yosemite Valley begins at the Four Mile Trail and travels up to the iconic Glacier Point with sweeping views. From there the aptly named Panorama Trail takes you down to the John Muir Trail and the Mist Trail with more stunning vistas and three of Yosemite’s stunning waterfalls. Utilizing Yosemite’s shuttle, […]

  • Sentinel Dome with Taft Point and The Fissures

    Hikes to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point and The Fissures can be done individually or put together into a 5.2mi/8.4km loop. These two short hikes off of the Glacier Point Road offer exceptional landscape features and great views looking down into Yosemite Valley and north towards the majestic mountains in the Tuolumne Meadows area.

  • Rocky Point Nature Trail 2021

    Just west of Apgar, tucked behind the Fish Creek Campground and Picnic Area, lies a short hike to a unique vantage of Lake McDonald. This short, lollipop-shaped loop takes you through both mature and recently burned forests, along creeks, and out to rocky outcroppings. The Rocky Point Nature Trail does have a short section of […]

  • McDonald Creek Trail 2021

    A quick drive from the West Entrance of Glacier National Park takes you to the head of Lake McDonald where McDonald Creek empties into it. The McDonald Creek Trail works its way up the playful creek, in an easy-going fashion with ample views of the crystal clear water. The trail begins as a level, ADA […]

  • Scenic Point 2021

    Despite the smoke from fires in the west hanging in the air, we decided to head out to the Two Medicine area to hike Scenic Point, a favorite of ours. While the smoke affected the views somewhat, it also kept the day a bit cooler. We ended up seeing ample wildflowers, picked some huckleberries, and […]

  • Skiing Grist Road to Fish Creek

    If you head west from Apgar in Glacier National Park and cross over McDonald Creek, the first road on your right is called Grist Road. Along this quaint road are a collection of private inholdings. The road dead-ends and one of Glacier’s few “bike-able” trails continues on to the Fish Creek Campground Road. I wouldn’t […]

  • Barred Owl in Glacier

    The journey is often the destination. We sometimes lose site of that as we hammer on to the lake, the summit, or the waterfall. The highlights, however, can often come as we’re heading to that “perfect social media spot”. We headed out on a mid-November day with Huckleberry Lookout as our rough “destination”. We weren’t […]

  • Climbing Great Northern Mountain

    Great Northern Mountain just south of Glacier National Park is a beast of a mountain. Kristen and I tried summiting it a few weeks ago, but the weather was terrible and we wanted to do it when we could enjoy the views. While the day started off with the mountain shrouded in the clouds, they […]
