Today let me introduce you to one of the most diverse hikes in the park,

1- Extra point for the cool mountain goats on the trail!
As noted above it was a great time of 2.5 hours. The hike to the over look is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) and 3.0 miles (4.8 km) to the lake.
The trail started at Logan Pass visitor's center and a beautiful field looking toward Mt. Clements which has an elevation of 8,765 feet (2,672 m) source
There was a nice board walk leading up to the mountain.
July 19, 2020 and @jarvie is sporting his shorts and t-shirt.
Just on the other side of the green field was snow! Which I was not prepared to walk in. We all made it across!
The water was so crystal clear.
Look at this view!
As we were hiking to the overlook it started raining and we turned around and saw this rainbow and then double rainbow.
Did a little posing with the rainbow.

We couldn't hike to the lake because of bears in the area.
A few pictures on the way back.
Fun silhouettes thanks to @jarvie
Another day in Glacier and another fantastic hike!
