The group was on trail by 8:45. After crossing the bridge, the group of five made a quick trip, probably in record time for the GiG (finished around 2:30), to Twin Falls and Upper Two-Medicine Lake.
Although windy, it wasn't too cold, although a few said the chill did keep the group moving along without many stops. The wind a the lake was particularly strong, making it not too nice for a lunch stop.
On the return trip, the gals happened upon some hikers who said three moose, a mama, baby and yearling, lay ahead. And the gals did see one moose, the yearling. This guy decided to parallel hike next to us, making it a bit uncomfortably close at times. But it was hard to know what to do as the moose seemed to keep the same pace we did, faster or slower.
The group at at the Alpenglow in East Glacier. This restaurant hasn't been the best in the past but is under new management and a new name.
After our hike, we said goodbye to Marta, who headed back to Essex. She reported seeing a bear on the road home. We arrived home by 6:30 p.m.
Who went: Marta, Susan, Bonnie, Kuntzie and Chrissie
Thanks to Marta, Chrissie and Bonnie for the pictures.
