Glacier Wildflowers - Glacier National Park, Montana

Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, Montana

Logan Pass is a must stop destination for anyone visiting Glacier NP. It lies on the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains and is the highest point on the Going- to-the-Sun Road at almost 6,700 feet. It is unusual to see wildflowers in the middle of August (when this was taken), but the summer season was a short one in 2014. The road to Logan Pass was opened in mid-July and closed in late September, so the growing season was quite short due to the snow melt. This vantage point is near the Visitors Center and is the beginning of the Hidden Lake Trail that takes you past Reynolds Mountain. The hike to Hidden Lake is on a boardwalk with some decent elevation change, but it is so worth it for the view.
