Day Five on Two Boats

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

For our second full day at the park, we reserved seats on a wooden boat to take us across the lake. We saw a moose emerge from the forest on one side of the lake. We could see some hikers start to approach him and he turned and started toward them. They moved quickly back out of sight and the moose came back to the lake and we watched him swim across to the other side. Here is our guide for the morning and the boat captain.

At the other side of the lake, we disembarked and hiked up and over a small hill to Lake Josephine, another glacier lake.

Waiting for us was another wooden boat which we took to the other side of the lake.

We disembarked and took a one mile hike through the back country to get to Lake Grinnell.

It was interesting to see the plants and trees.

There was a rustic pit stop along the way.

At one point, we had to cross this swinging bridge. Only one person was allowed to cross at one time.

I saw more of these pretty colorful stones in the water.

We finally reached the last lake.

We hiked back and waited for the boat to pick us up, hoping that enough people got off to allow us on for the trip back. I think 5 people had to wait for the next boat – two hours later.

Here is a view of the Many Glacier Lodge as we made our way back.

Mr C and I used to do a lot of hiking and it was great to get out in the back country and partake of something that we love so much. It has been too long.
