Granite Park, in Glacier National Park, is one of the most spectacular locations I have been in. This shot is looking back along the Garden Wall, the route most people take to hike here, but there are equally impressive visas in all locations. Granite Park is known for two things - it's famous chalet, and it was one of the locations where a girl was killed in Glacier's famous Night of the Grizzlies in 1963. (We stayed in the chalet, easily the most restful night I've spent in Glacier's backcountry.) At the end of August, Granite Park is high enough that wildflowers still bloom. These are Glacier lilies, one of the first plants up in the spring at lower elevations. Granite Park is an easy eight mile hike. You should try it.
