Today we spent another day in the awesome Glacier National Park. We started the morning by doing a couple hikes and it ended up taking over most of the day. The fist hike we did was called Trail of the Cedars and wasn’t actually planned, but you have to hike at least part of the trail to get to Avalanche Lake, which is where we were going. It’s a really easy, wheelchair accessible trail that follows a wooden walkway through the forest. There’s a really beautiful waterfall halfway through.
Then we took the junction at the back of the Trail of the Cedars that leads to Avalanche Lake. It’s a two mile hike, but well worth it. The lake is absolutely stunning and we probably spent more time sitting out there than we did hiking to it. I don’t think we got back to the car until almost 3pm.
Adela spent a good amount of time at the far end of the lake trying to skip rocks. It was quite entertaining.
After we hiked back to the car, we took some time to just relax and do nothing. Before we knew it, it was close to 9pm and we decided to head back out and check out Lake McDonald now that most people we off the road. The park is a lot more peaceful at night when very few people are there. We ended up driving all the way back to Logan Pass and stopped for pictures at more than a few spots along the way.
