Sunset   Sucess!

Watched the sunset up top after work back in Nov. Little snow at the time; large drifts for the last half mile or so.

Howe Fire  Sucess!

Have been here many times. Went up this day with friends from WI to see the Howe Ridge Fire. The fire had recently been quenched with some recent rain and cold nights so there wasn't much to see. Got a quick screen shot from the webcam for prosperity :)

Skied it!  Sucess!

Come for the scenery, stay because you don't have the skill to ski breakable crust through shrubs.

Nice warm up hike  Sucess!

I usually hike it at the start of every hiking season, just to get going. Nothing super special, it's kinda nice without all the trees in the way from the fire.

Awesome Burn Area  Sucess!

Hiked this after doing the Avalanche Lake hike in Glacier. This area burned recently and the views of the Flathead and Swan Ranges were incredible.

Apgar lookout  Sucess!

I got harassed by a spruce grouse right by the look out. Hilarious

my first hike in GNP!  Sucess!

To Lookout & then uphill through the shrubby growth & deadfall left from the fire. If the whole ridge is like that it would be an unpleasant ridge run. I went until it leveled out - but couldn't tell if I was on the true 'summit'. It was late afternoon & I heard a cold beer calling me back to campsite.

After 6 PM dinner  Sucess!

I did this as an after dinner hike one summer when I worked at Lake McDonald. Great views, but I don't personally count this as a true summit.

Apgar all season  Sucess!

Couple times in every season since it's so close.

One of my first in Glacier  Sucess!

Winter 2009

Climbed with Kelly in the snow right after moving to Montana. The road was closed due to snow, so the hike was considerably longer...and I forgot my snowshoes. Been up multiple times since, great early season hike.

Nice day for a hike  Sucess!

Glad the weather man was wrong. Great day for a hike. Good views, looks like a lot of snow on the higher peaks in the park.

Christmas Eve 2010  Sucess!

Went up on snowshoes Christmas Eve with my brother. It was foggy when we started in the morning, but by noon when we reached the top, the fog had lifted and there was not a cloud in the sky. Best Christmas ever.
