Write Up:
Happy, energetic snow shoers were rewarded with a sunny bluebird day, very solid uphill snow and spectacular views of the park and the mountains of the Great Bear Wilderness. After consolidating vehicles in Kalispell and Columbia Falls we parked at the beginning of the trailhead, Forest road 499, to the old Gary Lookout site. Spirits were high as the sun shone on the snow covered terrain. We took several breaks on the way up to take a lot of pictures. Our lunch spot was at 5917 offered us INCREDIBLE views of the park, Stanton Lake and Great Northern/Grant. Several members built an interesting snowman while others wondered around the ridge recording the beautiful scenery. The snow was very soft going down. A well deserved banquet was enjoyed when we arrived back to our vehicles.
