My friend Casey had recently arrived in Glacier from North Dakota to work as a photographer and I promised her to take her out to the hills. We opted for a hike from Two Medicine and while there decided to climb Painted Teepee. I had climbed it a few weeks earlier with a friend but found it fun enough and the views worthwhile to do it again.
