Posted from Essex, Montana, United States.
After a restful day off, Kevin and I had an easy day hike from East Glacier to Marias Pass. The trail was a mosquito breeding ground and even 100% deet seemed to be a poor armor. An almost complete lack of snow made the hike a great reprieve from the rigors of the previous days. Unfortunately it made the trail itself kind of boring and without any real feature – just a walk in the woods. With this fifteen miles we officially finished Glacier National Park.
Unfortunately I’m having to leave the trail for a few days to attend a funeral. We’re planning on heading into the Bob Marshall Wilderness on July 5 though. I’m hoping the extra days off will make a significant difference in the snow levels.
