Evening hike up to the overlook for sunset. The tundra at Logan Pass was popping with wildflowers and greenery. About halfway up the boardwalk, snow came into play. My wife braved it for a bit but it was the end of an already long day and multiple other snow crossings ahead meant that she was ready to turn back. She went back to the car (and got some funny video of a herd of bighorn sheep on the way back) while I continued. I only planned to go to the overlook anyway, but wanted to explore a little up there too, but the trail and general area around the overlook was closed (with lots of barricades, signs, and tape) out beyond due to grizzly activity. Me and a handful of other photographers were confined to the boardwalk, but still had a good time and enjoyed a nice sunset. "Skiing" down one of the icy snowpatches on the way back down was sure fun too.
