On August 23, with a Mountain Club group, I started a backpack from Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park towards Cobalt Lake surrounded by peaks of softer sedimentary rock, which had been sharply carved by enormous ancient glaciers. Not long on the trail, we saw two beautiful, black moose bulls, and we passed several nice waterfalls including Rockwell Falls. After setting up camp at the lake, taking great care to store our food on a high pole because of the large number of black and grizzly bears in the park, we hiked high above the lake onto a ridge above the tree line towards Two Medicine Pass. As we climbed onto the ridge, the wind began to gust strongly and we had to turn back after the hurricane force winds made it difficult to walk or stand. From the ridge, we could see several sharp peaks to the southwest including Vigil Peak and Statuary Mountain. From the lake, we watched a family of mountain goats grazing on grassy ledges on the sheer wall across the lake.
