Up early and off to Glacier National Park for another hiking trip. Our first destination was Avalanche Lake. A 4.5 mile hike.

John saw this funny looking log and snapped a photo.
Me and my hiking poles at the funny looking log. These hiking poles are my best friend.

We met a young couple on the trail who were on their way to go fishing. We took their picture for them so they took one for us. They were hoping the fish were biting because that was going to be their dinner. Sure hope the fish were biting.

Another view of Avalanche Lake. This was our view while we ate lunch. Pretty awesome. We were at this spot for almost an hour.
John decided to dip his feet into the cool water.

I joined John and soaked my bad foot. My foot has done remarkably well since I got my new hiking shoes.

We came across a family at this funny looking tree. They were trying to remake a photo of themselves. This was their second visit. The first was seven years ago. On their first trip they took a picture at this tree. We took the picture for them and they insisted that we have our picture taken here also.
After this hike we weren’t really tired so we hiked to John’s lake. This hike is a 1.8 mile hike.
