Gnomey at Hidden Lake

The first real day of vacation in Glacier National Park we decided to do the worst hike ever! It starts at a visitors center on the Going To The Sun Road. The hike from the visitor's center to a scenic look out isn't bad at all. Mostly board walk slowly winding up. Once you reach the outlook you have the choice of going back down or going down to the actual lake. 10 years before when we visited the park we only went to the look out. This year we decided to brave the hike down! It was tough! It was super hot and we hadn't brought enough water either. We made it all the way down with me getting vertigo a few times along the way. The lake was amazing! There were trout spawning at the mouth and they were so close! We watched the fish and then moved down and took off our shoes and waded in the lake. So cold! The hike back up was pure hell! My MIL wasn't sure she would make it up. Aaron and I just kept a postivie attitude and walked ahead. I'm so glad we did it!
