That picture was taken in Glacier National Park last summer during an off trail traverse from Siyeh Pass to the Many Glacier Hotel via the Boulder Creek Valley and the north slopes of Mount Wynn.

If Many Glacier to Wynn to Siyeh is the "Skyline Experience", I say we name this hike the "Lowline Experience". It's one of my favorite days ever in the park. I'd been wanting to check out Boulder Creek Valley since I was a kid. We didn't see any wolves but we did see a large herd of elk.

There's also supposedly a mineral lick on the north slopes of Wynn that's popular with goats. It's insider knowledge only for GNP hipsters. I've talked to rangers that have observed them at lick through a spotting scope on Many Glacier Road. We saw some while we were in that area.

I'm sure you've seen Chris's photos from Upper Boulder Creek Lake. It's worth scrambling down there from Siyeh Pass even if you don't continue all the way to MGH.

Yeah Rory, I've seen Chris' photos. Would love to make it down to those tarns one day. I believe old topo maps show a trail that followed Boulder Creek to these tarns. If I'm not mistaken, I read some info on GNP Chat a few years back from a dude who was able to find some old trail remnants somewhere south of Sherburne. I'll see if I can find anything for you.

I'm pretty sure there is a trail that goes from Sherburne Dam up to the crest of Boulder Ridge, right along the park boundary. I'd like do a hike from there to Rising Sun. There's a big beautiful lake just Northwest of East Flattop Mountain that's very high on my list of places to visit. It'd make for a pretty sweet two dayer.
