With a drier spring, some of the early trails such as Apgar Lookout are opening up sooner than normal. While we still walked on a bunch of snow, it was amazing to get out on a perfect day!
Hiking to Apgar Lookout has almost become a tradition of mine at the beginning of the season. With its south facing slope, it is one of the few higher elevation hikes that opens up early. With a perfect sunny day forecasted, Kristen and I had to check it out.
We were rewarded with wonderful smells, awesome birds such as Golden Eagles, Common Redpolls, and a Northern Goshawk to name a few. The weather was perfect and the mountains looked amazing reflecting into Lake McDonald. Hiking season is coming soon!
