HARDEST HIKE I HAVE EVER DONE
Today I hiked the Mount Brown Lookout Trail in Glacier National Park. It is ten miles round trip and one of the more difficult hikes in the park. To put the difficulty into perspective, in five miles you gain around 4,250′ of elevation gain. It is steep the entire way up and there is not a flat spot to take a break. It was absolutely relentless. I think I took a break at each switchback as we got higher. It probably did not help that my backpack weighed about 30-40 pounds…anyway…the fire-tower lookout was phenomenal.
We ended up having to trek through some heavy snow to get to it, but it was warm out and the views were breathtaking. Here are some photos from the trail and lookout. Oh, and mountain goats are very courteous. They walked within ten feet of me, got off trail to go around me, and then got back on the trail behind me.

There will be a whole post dedicated to Mount Brown Lookout Trail in its entirety once I get back home. Thank you again to anyone that checks out my posts, likes them, and comments on them.
