Saw a MOOSE! lots of bear activity and moose activity on the trail - bring bear spray. Turned back 4 miles in due to time but photos look awesome from top - need to do more next time!

Just did the first few miles as the day was getting on. 2 large grizzlies on the mountainside above the valley. Pleasant way to end the day.

Started hiking at Many Glaciers, went up and over Swiftcurrent Pass, up to Swiftcurrent Lookout, stopped at the Granite Chalet, continued out on the Highline Trail. Hiked 21.5 miles in 11 hours. This was a good route to see different scenery the entire hike. The views are amazing from the lookout so the climb up was very worth it. This has been my favorite hike out of six so far in Glacier!

Hiked from the Swiftcurrent side, about 16 miles total according to trail signs. Stunning, worth every step, one of my favorite in the park.

Hiked up to the peak from Granite Park Chalet and down from the Chalet to the parking lot. Going downhill was tough enough - I can't imagine backpacking this uphill!

For items trail we hiked along our backpacking trip. The switchbacks are tough on the knees but saw moose and many lakes along the way making it worth it!
