This was our third attempt at making this 10.7 mile 2300' elevation gain round trip hike up to the tunnel. In the past snow drifts have had the trail closed due to safety concerns. Fortunately this attempt didn't present any problems other than the very overcast conditions.

Hope you enjoy the photos and as always thanks for having a look!

Brings back great memories from last year's trip. We loved GNP, esp. the Ptarmigan Tunnel and the Iceberg Lake Hikes. Thanks for posting these!

Now you need to make your way to Waterton Lake on the Canadian side and hike to Crypt Lake:-)

Waterton Lake is great as well, I must agree. Even the town with all the sheep roaming the streets and lawns (almost got a head butt from one when bent over to pick something up lol. Also nice is to get shots of that gorgeous hotel, forget the name, but Princess Diana and mutton head stayed there.

Thank you all for the comments.

Stan - I envy your time spent photographing all the areas you have been and still are!

5Dmaniac - we've been up there just not hiked much. I am planning on putting together a trip for next August with my son and looking at doing Gunsight Pass in a day, that's 20 miles RT. Also Granite Park Chalet but haven't decided on the route yet.

You're right, Toney. I am grateful for what I'm able to do, just never quite satisfied, are we?:lol:

Toney, great set. GNP is still on my bucket list and its near the top. KUDOS to you.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Thanks for the inspiration, I grew up in Missoula and we made yearly visits to GNP and YNP.
In two weeks I'll be making the trip back to GNP in almost 20 years.
Looking forward to seeing this majestic place again.
