On the last day in Glacier National Park, our Road Scholar group hiked to Hidden Lake Overlook. The 3-mile-round-trip journey traveled uphill from the Logan Pass Visitor Center crossing alpine tundra where a few summer wildflowers waved their yellow and pink blooms in a blustery wind. No matter which way we looked, mountain peaks provided tempting photo opportunities. At the overlook, our group stopped for a picnic lunch, complete with a mountain goat sighting. What a scenic ending to five days of beautiful hiking in Glacier National Park. How many total miles did Alan and I hike? 30!
