Glacier NP  - Grinnell Glacier Trail
On the Grinnell Glacier Trail, July 31, 2005

View of Lake Josephine, about 1/3 of the way to the glacier

Almost to the point where the trail turns away from the lakes
and starts to head directly toward the glacier

Read my trip report about this hike here.

lcarreauWhat makes this


Voted 10/10

awesome is you can "zoom in" to the bridge
and the two people walking along what looks to
be a sandbar. This is truly amazing.

What "group" do you belong to? Is it a youth
group?? The color of the water tells me
there's a glacier nearby. Nice photography!!!

I was travelling with a part of my Boy Scout troop composed of older Scouts during a two week trip out west. The lake is Lake Josephine which receives water from Grinnell Glacier and perhaps, Salamander Glacier; I'm not sure. You can walk from the boat across to meet the trail or across to other trails around the lakes here. It's a popular area but the beauty is outstanding! Thank you so much for asking.---Kathy

Yeah, there's nothing quite like it elsewhere.
And thank you for the nice words!

I see you've done some traveling to great places particularly in Central America. I've got to get there someday!

This is actually the head Lake Josephine. The creek that's visible runs downstream from Grinnell Lake, which is out of view from this vantage point. Great photo by the way!

Thanks distressbark for correcting my error. As much as I love hiking and the mountains and maps I still can't identify things for the life of me.
