Day 163: into the park

10/1: Morning Star Lake
Miles: 23
Total trip miles: 2880.2

We said goodbye to Viper and TraJik and headed back towards Glacier. They are all done and catching Amtrak back to the west coast.

Through town and towards the mountains, it wasn't too cold but was overcast and everything looked a bit fuzzy. But still beautiful, with our assigned campsites and impending weather the next few days could be interesting.

Bye bye town

And what a pretty fall it is

We climb up past Oldman Lake and over Pitamakin Pass. It's gorgeous even if it is gray. The miles seem super easy and we're both wishing we had planned more ambitious mileage. Oh well it's not such a bad thing taking it easy and getting to camp early.

We get to our camp at Morning Star Lake ridiculously early. We're the only ones there and almost push on but decide to be respectful and play by the rules so we stay at our assigned spot.

We hear clattering and spend ages watching the little white blobs of mountain goats before heading to bed hiding from the cold.

    1. Not enough to talk about, just cold. Looks like it was a perfect year to end late. As long as you don't do something silly like get a job and buy plane tickets ahead of time.
