    Descending Siyeh Pass at GNP

    One of my favorite hiking photos from August 2012 in Glacier National Park dropping from Siyeh Pass towards Preston Park.

    When we started at the Going to the Sun Road early that morning, we were wearing t-shirts. By the time we reached the Sexton Glacier, the wind was howling and it felt around 40. It started raining as we reached our car later that afternoon. A perfect day, and hard to believe we only encountered about 10 people all day on any Glacier Hike close to the GTTSR.

    As I was hiking behind my wife, there was this incredible bounce to her step despite having already covered several miles and around 3,000 feet of elevation. It's amazing how far places like this will carry a person; the endless energy that seems to flow for miles.

    Reynolds Mountain at Logan's Pass is in the back left of the photo. Piegan Glacier and Mountain is in the front center, and the backside of the Garden Wall is in the back right. Preston Park is still several hundred feet below us to our right.
