We saw a moose on our Road Scholar hike in Glacier National Park

We met a mother moose on the way to Bullhead Lake

On the fifth day of our Road Scholar Glacier National Park hiking program, Alan and I hiked to Bullhead Lake with the fast hiking group. The trail leading from Swiftcurrent Motor Lodge had so many high points that it’s hard to pick a photo of the day. Glacial colored lakes, towering mountains and alpine meadows filled almost every inch of this 8-mile-round-trip hike. It was hard to choose between hiking and photographing the outstanding scenery that surrounded us. But, discovering a mother moose and her offspring delighted the wildlife watchers in our Road Scholar group, including us.

Counting today, we’re up to 27 miles of hiking in 4 days. Tomorrow’s trail is our last so check back to see what we discover. If you’d like to see more photos from today’s hike to Bullhead Lake, check out our album at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook.

Do you have a favorite animal sighting while hiking or have you traveled along the trail to Bullhead Lake? Share your experiences with us. Alan and I can’t wait to repeat this hike. It’s on our all-time favorite boomer travel experience list.

Disclosure: Road Scholar has provided this travel experience, but the opinions are our own.
