After yet another evening of incredible food, good wine, and enjoying the company of some new friends, we again rest quite well. This is the only way to see Glacier, we believe!
We head back to the beautiful park for more nourishment this morning. Today's agenda includes a a 4-mile hike to Avalanche Lake and is one of those beautiful treks that provides endless scenery while journeying to the destination. In other words, the perfect hike!
We, alas, tarry a bit too long at the lake and a forming storm hits just about 1/2 mile shy of our exit. Of course, as good hikers, we are prepared with the necessary gear and, as has happened on several previous occasions, actually enjoy the gifts that come with a good rain storm. The personality of a forest so completely changes when one rolls in and it's nice to be a guest from time to time.
As the storm passes and the weather clears, we make camp at a beautiful area, enjoying the gorgeous and amazingly secluded scenery with our books. Ahh, life is really good!
