Hiking to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park

Today’s highlight, on our third day of the Road Scholar Glacier National Park hiking program, had to be the hike to Avalanche Lake in West Glacier. The trail travels through rolling terrain accompanied by the roar of water rushing down Avalanche Creek and a wind that whooshes through the old growth forest. After hiking 2 miles, we earn the reward of lunch on the rocky beach of a glacier-fed lake as waterfall ribbons stream down rocky mountainsides.
