If you want to cut some miles off of hikes in the Many Glacier and Upper Two Medicine areas, you can take a short and pleasant ride on the vintage boats that operate on Swiftcurrent Lake, Two Medicine Lake, and Lake Josephine. Taking the Chief Two Guns on Swiftcurrent and the Morning Eagle on Lake Josephine will cut a couple of miles (one way) off the hike to Grinnell Glacier and put you within 0.6 miles of Grinnel Lake. Ditto the Sinopah on Two Medicine Lake which will cut off a several miles on the hikes to Upper Two Medicine Lake and the hike to Dawson Pass. You'll also be within about 3/4-mile of Twin Falls.
The boats have been in operation for 80+ years and are in immaculate shape. The Sinopah is especially beautiful for its exposed wood grain finish on portions.
This place is so large you will have to use an auto to get your over view. However, there are buses that will also do this for you. The most intimate way to visit this or any of our National Parks is by foot, however, to get the best of the best.
This cutie was walking alongside the road. he didn't like to be followed, but from a distance, he loved to pose for pics alright! Fortunately we were at a parking lot at the time.
