In a park where more than a few valleys can vie for the name “grand,” this one is the grand contender. A necklace of sparkling alpine lakes adorning bold mountain faces spans this mile-high valley. Wildflowers, old growth, alpine tundra, deer, bears, marmots—they’re all here in this outdoor cathedral. Your ticket into this wild kingdom is mostly downhill, though you do pay the piper on the grueling ascent on the way out.

In a park where more than a few valleys can vie for the name “grand,” this one is the grand contender. A necklace of sparkling alpine lakes adorning bold mountain faces spans this mile-high valley.

Wildflowers, old growth, alpine tundra, deer, bears, marmots—they’re all here in this outdoor cathedral. Your ticket into this wild kingdom is mostly downhill, though you do pay the piper on the grueling ascent on the way out.
