Today began early since we were going to do the Grinnell Glacier hike. Its a very strenous hike that either begins on the trailhead outside the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn or on two boat rides that you can catch from the Many Glacier Hotel across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine.

... while on the boat was a bald eagle in a tree. This boat ride was so worth it. The calm boat trip with the great scenery was a great end to the day. We had chosen to do the 7:00pm ride to try and get some great pictures at sunset. Thankfully it only rained on the way out and not on the way back. Our ponchos have definitely come in handy during this trip! I will never forget the beautiful views I have seen today!
We're still in Waterton Lakes National Park, our last day here, and we were up early shooting sunrise photos. Toward evening a rain shower left us sprinting from the restaurant to our hotel, the second shower that Julie and I took today. As I looked out from our hotel room after the shower stopped, I saw a rainbow and jumped in the car to go to the Prince of Wales hotel which sits on a bluff to see if I could get a photo. See the photos for the day below.

... We were hoping to see some moose there, but that didn’t happen. We did, however, encounter tons of mosquitos and biting flies. I forgot the bug spray, but another hiker shared theirs.
Then, it was back to the boat, and back to Canada!
So I will admit I ran 6 hour behind the original departure with packing and purging. So we re-planned to sleep and leave at 0200 hours . Firas could not sleep because he decided his road trip pants (one of two) had been soiled by Scaramouche while he waited for me and they had to be thoroughly washed before the trip. Hence, here we are at 10.20 hours still ...
