St. Mary's Glacier

I have been working like an animal at PB the past two weeks, due to Cameron not having a job, and the biggest fall floorset in recent years at my work.  So when I found out I had yesterday and today off, we jumped at the chance to do another hike!  We narrowed it down to two hikes, and St. Mary's won out.  I'm SO glad it did.  It was beautiful  and so great.  Minus the kids throwing huge tempers around lunch time.  But it started and ended well, so we're going to remember and go with that!

It was a bit of a rough hike, I won't lie.  It's at 10,000 ft and pretty steep the whole way.  Kai did awesome, Kennedi needed help most of the way.  She did really well though, and we were proud of both of them!

Our first peek at the glacier, can you see it through the trees?

Then you get up to the actual lake, and it is just SO beautiful!

Then we made our way over to the actual glacier.  But careful!

It was a bit breezy and chilly up there, KiKi was SO not a fan!

All along the way we had beautiful views.  

We stopped for lunch at the base of this mountain with these gorgeous flowers.  The kids were a total disaster by this point, but I managed to get a good picture of Kai after he had a little sandwich and chips in him!

My handsome man

And with one final goodbye to the mountain, we were gone.

We had a great hike, a beautiful day, and again were reminded how grateful we are to live in such a beautiful place.  I can't wait for our next adventure!  (Maybe we'll just eat a little sooner!)
