Land & Water

Our third day in Glacier National Park we managed a 3 mile hike and a 10 mile (or so) boat ride. First up, the trek to Rocky Point - interesting because it took us through an area that was part of a 57,000 acre wildfire in 2003. Although you can still see the damage it's quite amazing how the area has recovered - also, the trail had some nice views of Lake McDonald and the surrounding mountains.

I have no idea what this was.


Next up - we rented a small motorboat, packed lunch and spent an hour and a half puttering around Lake McDonald. The lake is glacier fed, very cold, very deep (478 feet) so we put forth some extra effort at remaining upright and in the boat. Had a nice afternoon.
