Lunch Creek in Glacier National Park

I've lived my whole life in Montana, visiting Glacier National Park countless times, but it was only this last summer that I finally stopped in the Lunch Creek area, (located just after Logan's Pass on the east side). The reason for this is simple, there isn't an official trail at Lunch Creek, but this year we explored this area in ...

Snyder Lake in Glacier National Park

Snyder Lake in Glacier National Park is a great option for the spring and fall seasons when the Going to the Sun Road is closed at the Lake McDonald Lodge.

Piegan Mountain Scramble in Glacier National Park

The views from this short scramble were unbelievable! The 'trail' of sorts for both Piegan Mountain and Pollock Mountain start at Lunch Creek which is just minutes from Logan's Pass on the east side. We haven't done much scrambling in Glacier National Park yet, so we really had a blast getting back into some tougher terrain! We used to scramble ...

Cracker Lake is located in the Many Glacier region of the park, and it ranks among most people's top 10 hikes to do in Glacier National Park. Many Glacier is probably my favorite section of the park for it's intense stunning beauty and glacial colored lakes. Even so, I'd never been to Cracker Lake until this year, and I definitely ...
