Flagg Canyon

Flagg Canyon and Polecat Creek Loop

Various sections of the Snake River through Flagg Canyon in the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway area are beautiful, but much of the rest parallels a busy road.

Gunsight Lake and Florence Falls

I visited Gunsight Lake in 2014 as part of a memorable 20 mile day hike that took us to Gunsight Pass, Lake Ellen Wilson, Lincoln Pass, Sperry Chalet, and out to Lake McDonald Lodge.

This is the time of year that gets us looking at summer pictures of Glacier National Park and dreaming of trails, mountains, lakes, birds, bears and huckleberries.
