Ascent to Avalanche Lake

Stop at Glacier National Park

Avalanche Lake is a popular stop for visitors to Glacier National Park, located on the historic Going To The Sun Road, the pearl of the park. From the car park, Avalanche Creek leads to the lake. it is 3 km with an elevation gain of 200 meters. The route is suitable for cyclists and wheelchair users. The lake is located at an altitude of 1191 m above sea level. Around it are mountains exceeding the height of 2300 m above sea level. There are many tourists, so you can't enjoy the silence of nature. This is a moderately demanding hike. Then we get to Avalanche Lake. One immediately recognizes that it is located in a glacial kingdom, because there are many trees on the edge of the lake, thanks to avalanches. I walk around the lake and meet my family, where their ancestors were Slovaks, but in our case they no longer spoke. The view of the lake is very beautiful.

The beginning of the journey

Road through a beautiful forest. I was surprised by the American women who talked about the forest as if they had seen it for the first time in their lives.

The consequence of glaciers

We are on the edge of Avalanche Lake and there are many trees. Thanks to frequent avalanches. That's why the lake may have that name.
