An early morning boat ride across Waterton Lake starts this day hike
Then it’s about 5 miles or so and up about 2,000 feet of good trail….
to a place which cannot be climbed around, so one goes up a ladder to enter a small tunnel…
Where the tunnel exits to a cable assisted section of trail
Crypt Lake. The International Boundary is probably just a few feet from the far shore.
Here we are taking turns going down the cable way. The cable was convenient on the ascent, but was too low on the descent. Mary Meagher was brave enough to get this shot!
Waterton Townsite Campground: Lovely campsite & dinner party.
Just outside of our campground: Mt Cleveland, highest in Glacier Park, Montana.
