Hiking Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks

The snow cleared out of Glacier so late this year, that not many trails were open. This one was a pleasant surprise. It was not too tough, but it also really allowed us to get a feel for the wilderness we couldn''t reach. Lots of views of a beautiful lake, which we camped near, so we felt even more connected.
It was a beautiful forest hike that offers peeks at the lake, but not enough to really satisfy if water is what you are looking for. Nonetheless, you can get lost in your mind as you get lost on the trail and look at the trees and the natural surroundings. For 6.6 miles it can get a little bit long.
