Sun Rising on Longfellow Peak
 

The winter doldrums are officially here in Northwestern Montana near Glacier National Park.

Many of the locals escape for a few days or for a week of sun to the warm(er) weather of Arizona or Mexico. Others languish inside the confines of their homes eagerly anticipating the arrival of the spring robins which indicate that winter is soon to loosen its grasp on the hills and mountains.

With few options for activities that do not include dealing with temperatures below the freezing mark others venture out into Montana’s winter wonderland and discover an untapped wilderness that has unique opportunities and challenges as well as beautiful scenery clothed with sugary-white snow.

After weeks of making and breaking plans montanarendonk and I headed up to snowshoe to the Snyder Lakes Basin in Glacier National Park. We were considering this outing as a pre-trip equipment test for the more strenuous trip of climbing to the Mount Brown Lookout later in the season.

After weeks of making and breaking plans montanadonk and I headed up to snowshoe to the Snyder Lakes Basin in Glacier National Park. After a quick breakfast and hastily shuffling my youngest to elementary school we headed up to Glacier National Park. In the valley there were a few blue patches of sky a rare occurrence in the usually inversion packed gray cloudy days of winter in Northwestern Montana. As usual we hope for the best with regards to weather and winter outings and today would be no different.

We were considering a pre-trip for climbing to the Mount Brown Lookout later in the season.
