Spring Trail Run

Went out for a trail run yesterday up in Glacier National Park. Combined the Avalanche Trail (not Avalanche Lake Trail) with the John's Lake Loop and McDonald Creek Trail for a sweet trail run. Later on in the season, use by the horse concessionaires can make this for a stinky affair, however, in th

Cascade Creek Trail

The Cascade Creek Trail in Yellowstone National Park loosely follows Cascade Creek through forest and meadows to the Cascade Lake Trail. It's a slightly longer alternate to Cascade Lake, very level, and offers a little less than the shorter, Cascade Lake Trail. The Cascade Creek Trail takes off from

Avalanche Lake Spring 2016 Bike and Hike

It was a beautiful spring day and we decided to grab out bikes and backpacks and head up to Glacier National Park. I wanted to get a picture of Avalanche Lake on a bluebird day, so we made that our destination. Currently, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed at Lake McDonald Lodge, so we needed to ri

Harlequin Lake

Spring Snowpack Check at the Figure Eight

It's been a bit since I've been up to Glacier National Park so Kristen and I headed up there to do a bit of hiking. We wanted to check out the snow pack and enjoy an absolutely gorgeous spring day. We knew we were going to be staying low, so after considering a few options, we decided to walk along

Cygnet Lakes

Cygnet Lakes in Yellowstone National Park is a lake at the end of a large meadow reached by four miles of level hiking through lodgepole stands. Due to the marshy edges of the lakes, you can't get very close and many visitors may find the day better spent going to other lakes. The trail to Cygnet La
