Hiking in Zion National Park

The Narrows

I’m currently down in Zion National Park working on my next project (those of you following me on Twitter and Facebook have already seen some photos). This place is truly amazing and I can’t believe I’m getting to explore it so much. Here’s a picture I took yesterday from the Narrows. I’ll begin posting more Zion […]

Floral Park Traverse

Floral Park Traverse

The Floral Park Traverse is probably the most well known traverse in Glacier National Park, but it’s not for the lazy or unexperienced. Gaining over 4,000 ft of elevation and descending more than 7,000 over 19 miles is well worth the views if you can find the route. Below is the video of our day […]

Ptarmigan Tunnel to Redgap Pass Goat Traverse

Redgap Pass from Goat Trail

The iconic Ptarmigan Tunnel in Many Glacier is a popular day hike. The tunnel is also frequently used by backpackers descending and ascending into the Belly River drainage which is often paired with Redgap Pass to make a loop. For those interested in connecting these two features without losing the elevation via trail, an off-trail […]

Climbing Mt. Grinnell

Blake and Kristen on Grinnell small

Mt. Grinnell stands tall between two incredible drainages in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park. While not on the Garden Wall, the easiest way to access it is from the Lake McDonald side via the Grinnell Glacier Overlook. I did so with my wife, Kristen, and my buddy Blake Passmore of Climb Glacier […]

Pitamakan Dawson 2014

Pitamakan Lake

The loop in Glacier National Park that travels through both Pitamakan Pass and Dawson Pass is one of my favorites, if not my very favorite. One is almost guaranteed to see big game, gorgeous lakes, four separate drainages and a ridge walk that’s unparalleled in the Park. The excuse was a mountain goat survey, as […]

Iceberg Lake 2014

Iceberg Lake

It doesn’t take very long on the Iceberg Lake trail in Glacier National Park to understand why it’s perhaps the most popular hike in the Many Glacier area. A steep first section quickly gives way to a nice gradual ascent all the way to the lake with views all around. We had a perfect bluebird […]

Climbing Mt. Gould 2014

Grinnell Glacier Basin

Most of Glacier National Park’s visitors are familiar with the Garden Wall. Mt. Gould is the highest point along this particular stretch of alpine spine that dominates the skyline as the Highline Trail traverses it and cars cling to the cliffy edge as they head up towards Logan Pass. Climbers frequent the wall’s peaks for […]

In Search of Ptarmigans on Piegan Pass

Piegan Pass

All across the alpine landscape of Glacier National Park, a high elevation grouse hides in plain site. After hiking all across Glacier I’d only seen a couple White-tailed Ptarmigans. Coincidentally, the couple that I’d seen were at Piegan Pass which was exactly where my buddy, Cory DeStein wanted to go. Cory had hiked with me […]

Cobalt Lake 2014

Cobalt Lake

Nestled up against red cliffs that lead up to Two Medicine Pass, is a beautiful lake called Cobalt Lake. This beautiful lake in Glacier National Park isn’t the only treasure along the trail, however. Rockwell Falls, a pond that frequently attracts moose and a flower filled alpine approach make for a rewarding day. My wife […]

Garden Wall Summit Trifecta

Bishops Cap

Three summits along the Garden Wall, Bishops Cap, Mt. Pollock, and Piegan Mountain, are a great day trip for those looking for some wonderful views above Going-to-the-Sun Road and the Highline Trail. The route is most frequently accessed from Lunch Creek just east of Logan Pass, but my buddy Blake Passmore, from Climb Glacier recommended […]
