Twisted tree (and tiny Jason) on the trail back from Grinnell Glacier, Glacier National Park, July 2004.

I love this photo because it reminds me of the hike we took to Grinnell Glacier. The glacier itself was a bit of a disappointment, but the trail was absolutely drop-dead gorgeous for almost its entire length.

And, at 12 miles round-trip, it's the longest hike I've ever done. I know, it's not majorly long for experienced hikers, but since my usual hiking area includes a paved trail and flush toilets, this was a big deal.

12 miles in the mountains is a full day hike, no matter how you cut it.
