Scenic Point 2017 by Mrs. Hike 734

Jake is currently in Yosemite National Park working on his next Hike 734 project.  If you regularly follow his blogs you might have seen me tagging along behind him on his hiking adventures. I won’t be able to join him in Yosemite until August, but that won’t keep me from hitting the trail. I wrapped […]

Scalplock Lookout in the fog

Scalplock Lookout 2017

Finding high points in Glacier National Park in early spring (especially with a high snow pack like 2017!) can be difficult. Scalplock Lookout is one of the great options to do this. It has a south facing slope and doesn’t get too high, so snow melts out earlier. Longing for a day in Glacier, we […]

South Boundary Trail Spring 2017

South Boundary Trail Spring 2017

We had a nice sunny day to head on up to go for a hike. While snow is still easy to find in Glacier National Park, we were hoping to find some dry trails. After going through a quick list, we decided that the South Boundary Trail would fit the bill. It is south facing […]

Running Eagle Falls

Skiing to Running Eagle Falls 2017

The common misconception with Glacier National Park is that when Going-to-the-Sun Road and other roads close, the park is closed. The great thing about this misconception is that the park is extremely quiet and we enjoyed that solitude with a cross-country ski to the lovely, mystical Running Eagle Falls in Two Medicine. The forecast looked […]

Electric Peak

Electric Peak and Cache Lake

The climb up to the summit of Electric Peak culminates to breathtaking, unparalleled, panoramic views of the Mammoth area of Yellowstone National Park. The spur trail to Cache Lake is a nice destination and far less arduous. Both are longer days, and paired together, gives you an epic adventure. Electric Peak stands tall and proud […]

Rogers Meadow 2016

Rogers Meadow in Glacier National Park is a seldom visited meadow where Camas Creek slows to a meandering crawl. After noticing that the Inside North Fork Road was open to Camas Creek and the sun was shining, we decided to make Christensen Meadow and Rogers Meadow our destination. The Inside North Fork Road is a […]

Slide Lake Backpack 2016

I had the opportunity to go on my first backpack (yes, you read that right) of the year at Slide Lake in Glacier National Park this past weekend. The plan was to hike up Lee Ridge, drop down to Slide Lake, explore around and then hike back out the next day. Originally, we were going […]

Climbing Mt Siyeh

Climbing Mt. Siyeh

Mt. Siyeh is one of six summits in Glacier National Park that is over 10,000 ft. It is the easiest of the 10,000 ft peaks to reach and has fantastic views all the way around! A big shout out to Blake Passmore and his Climb Glacier National Park books which are incredibly helpful in finding routes to summits. If […]

Gunsight Pass

Gunsight Pass 2016

The long and wonderful hike over Gunsight Pass in Glacier National Park is traditionally done as a two day backpacking trip (or a nice stay at the alpine Sperry Chalet), but we decided to tackle it as an incredible day hike. It was a perfect day full of blue skies, stunning lakes, waterfalls, wildflowers, and […]

Siyeh Pass 2016

Siyeh Pass 2016

Hiking Siyeh Pass in Glacier National Park in July and August inevitably leads to incredible amounts of wonderful flowers and this trip, under a cloudless blue sky, did not disappoint. I was hiking with some friends Mary and Baker who had won a hike with me during the annual Backpacker’s Ball that the Glacier Conservancy puts […]
