Check out the route in detail on AllTrails.
Dave, Shanza, and I were not sure what the day would hold for us. We finally decided to go backpacking :p. Once our bags were packed we headed to the Grouse Ridge trailhead, a beautiful place to begin our hike! We headed down the ridge, towards the Black Buttes. The trail was straightforward and scenic. We arrived at Glacier Lakes, found a spot to make camp, and went for a swim.
After we cooled off, we did a little exploring around the lake and the ridge that connects to the buttes.
In the evening we enjoyed the sunset, the campfire, and the stars.
