Grinnell Lake

Glacier National Park, Montana

I set off in the early morning darkness with a flashlight a bear spray, knowing full well that this was grizzly bear country and I was the first hiker of the day.  I reached Grinnell Lake shortly after sunrise.  I was impressed with the height and steepness of the mountains surrounding the lake and especially the multiple colors and waterfall on the flank of the mountain.  I had the place to myself for the entire morning; even the bears stayed away.
