And the last piece to 8490 is a great finish (ours had goats and eagles on top of the views). But do not overlook the strenuous nature of the hike itself, which may daunt some of your party, depending on their experience.
Mt. Henkel has the most view for your effort in Many Glacier. On a sunny day it is awesome. You can avoid the scree going up on the left and scree ski down the bowl. I did this with my wife (with no snow) and we still talk about it, because 24 years ago we were a lot less experienced and actually got in a little trouble trying to get down the red cliffs too far to the east.
