Some images from a visit to Glacier National Park during a very wet September 2013.
On the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. Not far from my recent hike from Milner Pass towards Mount Ida, but about two thousand feet lower in elevation and a little further west. The trail starts at around 9300 feet MSL and climbs to the Lake at 11,040 feet. There isn't much that is really steep - but it just climbs all the way - for 5.1 miles.
On the way to the trailhead, I paused to take a shot of some nice clouds near Lake Irene.
A hike along the Continental Divide.
This route starts at Milner Pass on the Continental Divide. It climbs from about 10,500 ft. MSL to well above the tree line, towards the summit of Mt. Ida, at 12,280 ft.
