Gunsight Lake

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. So when some of my girlfriends invited me to hike with them to Gunsight Lake I gladly accepted the invitation to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gunsight Pass – August 2012

During the official Hike 734 project, I had a great two days over Gunsight Pass in Glacier National Park with Gunsight Lake, Lake Ellen Wilson, Sperry Chalet and Sperry Glacier to name a few things. Two regrets I had was not filming Gunsight Lake at the foot of the lake from the campground and getting […]

Going-to-the-Sun Road Glaciers

Glaciers Visible from Going-to-the-Sun Road

With a name like Glacier National Park, one would expect to show up and see a ton of glaciers everywhere. The truth of the matter is a little more complicated. For starters, the park is so named for the way that it was formed as giant glaciers carved out the peaks leaving amazing mountain formations […]

Gunsight Pass

Gunsight Pass

The trail from Jackson Glacier Overlook in the St. Mary Valley over the Continental Divide at Gunsight Pass to Lake McDonald Lodge offers an amazing trip with a bunch of extras including Sperry Glacier, Sperry Chalet, Lake Ellen Wilson and Florence Falls. I got a bit of a late start after taking the shuttle service […]

Lake McDonald

Mt Brown Lookout

Mt. Brown is located at the head of Lake McDonald and the lookout gives you fantastic views of the lake and the surrounding valley which is towered by inspiring mountain walls. The hike starts across the road from the historic Lake McDonald Lodge and breaks off from the trail that leads to the Sperry Chalet. […]
