Stay at North Face Lodge then the walk to Wonder Lake is a lovely experience. Animals are close by and hopefully want to show themselves to you.

It requires a box lunch because of the long trip. It was a wonderful trip. We learned a lot and saw 12 bears, 1 moose, Dal sheep.

There is only one bus route. Wonder Lake is about three miles or so from the literal "end of the road", about 90 miles in.
