Logan Pass to Granite Park

Logan Pass to Granite Park, see map, 7.6 miles one way. The beginning of our trek in Glacier.

There is a reason why they call the first part of the trail the Garden Wall, if you hit it right, flowers will surround you for a good portion of the hike, even though you are pretty much on solid rock the whole time, they find a way to grow.

Goats are very common along this trail, especially early morning
while the trail is still in the shadow of the garden wall.

Bear grass is plentiful and a constant companion in late July.

Some new flowers to me.

The trail grew hot as the day progressed, looking back towards Logan Pass.
