I don't even know where to start. This trip, and plannig, started for me about 2 years ago and finnaly came true last week. I want to say thanks to the members before me that have posted pics and videos, one of whom was David Chenault, you have an amazing backyard to play in. This is going to be my new play ground, when ever I can afford the time and money to get out there. This trip originaly started with 8 people going, but after some people bowing out due to jobs and other constraints, we ended up with 4 total, this worked out to be the magic number. The 4 that went were, Marc Eldredge, his brother Rick, David Wage and myself. I left my house on Aug. 24th at 5:30 am and drove to Davids house in Modesto to meet up with everyone else. When I got there everyone one was accounted for and ready to start this journey. We left Modesto and headed for my sisters house in Madras Oregon where we would spend our first night. When we arrived we had a nice BBQ dinner waiting for us (Thanks sis) and beds for everyone, plus showers! The next morning we were off to Montana, oh I forgot to mention, on the way up the 99 fwy we hit smokey skies from Redding Ca. all the way to Oregon due to wild fires, when we passed Mt Shasta you could barley see it, or the lake. We got to the Glacier Park and found that all the sites were full, but we kept checking untill we found one, then we rolled out the bivy's in the dark and went to sleep. The next morning Marc payed for our site and we went to pick up the permit, and check out the park since our hike didn't start until Mon. This gave us a chance to try out the free park shuttle, have some breakfest, coffee, and of course some Huckkelberry icecream. YUUUUMMMMMM!!! Dave and I would drive the car to the loop and park it there, so after our hike we could drive it to the lodge where we would all spend the night. We took the shuttle back which was very nice and clean, and it gave us a chance to site see. Mon. morning we hopped on the non stop shuttle to Logans Pass to start our hike on the Highline trail. Now for some pictures.
This is the start to the Highline trail.
Right off the bat we seen Rams and Mountain goats.
Our first look at the Highline trail.
I fast foward to these 2 pics just to give you an idea of whats in store.
I'll post more pics later this week, I need to resize alot of them first. I'm sure once the guys see I've posted they well start posting thier pics also. I hope everyone enjoys them, but they just don't due the Park justice.
