On Saturday, I began the long challenging hike to climb out of the Tonahutu Valley onto the broad, open ridge of the continental divide above tree line. On the ridge, the junction of the Tonahutu Trail and the North Inlet Trail was just below Flat Top Mountain. I stashed my pack and made the short climb up to the mountain top which was full of day hikers from the east side. There were views out to the prairie and over the cliffs, steeply down to the lakes on the east side of the National Park. Back on the North Inlet Trail, the views across the flower-covered tundra went on forever in all directions.
