Glacier 2

Today we hopped on the bike and headed back to Glacier for another try at getting through the gate before the sun went down.  And it worked.  We picked the correct lane and drove about 15 miles into the park to the trail-head for the Avalanche Trail, a moderate 5 mile loop (if you go all the way to the end of the lake).  There were quite a few hikers on the trail since this hike is one of the most popular.  And we could see why.

Despite being late in the season, the water was beautiful and fast.

A couple of views from the lake.  There were four waterfalls coming off the mountains.
Unfortunately the lighting angle was pretty poor for pictures.

Looking back the other way.

And a side view through the trees.  The water really looked like that.

A little friend that walked within five feet of us.  

And a last picture just before we got back to the bike.
