Did some hikes around the lake and enjoyed all the views. Tons of wildlife to watch as well. The still mornings and stormy evenings were relaxing to say the least!

The view out our hotel window at Many Glacier Hotel was of Swiftcurrent Lake and the mountains beyond. One of the best hotel room views I've ever had.

This is a beautiful mountain lake with vistas. The trail around it is easy but we never completed it due to interference from a Grizzly Bear Mom and her three cubs. The people who were kayaking on the lake warned us about the bears approaching....More
