Glacier National Park – Apgar Winter Hike

In the winter you start by hiking a couple of miles in to reach the trailhead for Apgar Lookout. This makes it a bit of an endeavor in the winter, so today we just went for a few miles, more just to get out than anything else. I love tromping through the glittering snow with the crisp air and the sound of water in the background.

You want to make the most of a day, but sometimes getting out for even a partial day is just what I need. It seems that things sometimes get too busy to get out, but it’s always worth it to make the effort to set aside a few hours for ‘mountain time’.

On the way back it was absolutely still and silent.  The calm before the storm. The sky was filling with ominous black clouds and the snow was starting to fall in the mountains.
