Logan Pass, Glacier National Park

It was still snowed-in when we went to Logan pass this year, but if you want to see some great Mountain Goat and Bighorn Sheep pictures look at our photos from our 2007 trip at http://picasaweb.google.com/Suzanne.and.Brad.photos

Last year we hiked to Hidden Lake, which was about 1.5 miles to the lookout, all uphill (some boardwalks will start the hike) and another 1.5 miles to the lake. Most people stop at the over look and make it a round trip from there. We would have done the hike again this year, but it was closed (along with a few other hikes we would have liked to have done, such as the Highline Trail). There are also a ton of Glacier Lilies here, which are a favorite of the Grizzly Bear – they savor the bulbs.

After tooling around the St. Mary and Logan Pass areas, we headed for lunch at Johnson’s of St. Mary’s. It was recommended for lunch by many of the locals, so we decided to try it on our way back to Many Glacier Campground. As you leave St. Mary and head north, you will see the sign. It’s in a rustic log house full of historic artifacts, and they serve the regular fare: burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc… It was a very casual atmosphere and rather busy, the food was good.
