Our visit to Glacier National Park took us 16 miles in the West Glacier entrance to Avalanche Campground. With 50 camp sites the campground is definitely on the edge of the wild.
While there were no signs of bears the deer had no problem with the campers.
After camping at Avalanche Campground, we took a hike along Avalanche Creek, a rough yet spectacular clear blue creek runs along an 'easy' hike up towards Avalanche Lake. The hike is approximately 2 miles each way and a gain of 500ft in elevation.
Along the hike many surrounding mountains still had snow which was melting and causing runoff resulting in huge falls, this is a small one;
Upon reaching the lake we found crystal clear water surrounded by mountains.
Later that day, a little lunch at McDonald Lake;
