We drove up to the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park and decided to do the Iceberg Lake hike. This was 9.8 miles round-trip. Did I mention that my kids and my husband are troopers?
As I have mentioned before, it appears that Glacier is in peak wildflower season. Here's a look at a ton of the bear grass that was growing on our hike – you can also see some other small wild flowers along the way. It was gorgeous as we hiked through the valley.
We made it to the Ptarmigan Falls which were about halfway before we sat down and had our snack. This Colombian ground squirrel decided to join us and almost called right up on my mom's lap for his snack.
The boys thought one of the biggest downfalls of the icebergs in the lake was that they could not skip rocks.
Check out these views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
In case you were wondering – it is much harder to hike down hill through snow than uphill. That is primarily because the top layer turns to slush and is very slippery and it is hard to get a good grip as you hike downward.
Oh how my heart longs to live in Montana!!!!!!!
