When we arrived at Glacier NP in June this year we learned that most backcountry trails are still closed, especially all the highline ones. What bummer because that's what I was looking forward to the most here. We ended up doing a 5-day hike in the Belly River area instead which is much lower down. I expected lots of forest walking and not many views. Oh boy I was wrong. The trail was leading in and out of lush forests, had open flower-covered meadows, cliff views, lakes, waterfalls, big mountain views all around - it was incredibly varied throughout which amazed us to no end. This photo is a snit-bit of the trail on the first day (about half-way between Gable Creek and US-CA border customs).
