Maybe it’s because Tyler and I hadn’t been out hiking together in over 10 months, or maybe it was the golden larches. But in whatever it was this day was magical! We choose to hike Huckleberry Lookout specifically because it’s located in the midst of larch country.
Otokomi Lake in Glacier National Park is a less traveled trail, often overlooked in favor of the classics. However I personally love this trail. So much so that I hesitated for over a year to even write about it. After all, it’s kind of nice to hike on less known and less travelled trails.
If you’ve been following along with our Iceland journey, this is it, we finally made it to day 15! It was an incredible trip from start to finish, and our last full day in Iceland did not disappoint.
When we left off at the end of Day 13, we were in the middle of a gale force rain storm. But luckily Day 14 dawned with the skies clearing, and the sun trying to poke out. We were excited for a nicer day, at least for most of it since it was supposed to start raining again late in the afternoon.
