Ascent Trip Report

Day hike into Avalanche Lake Glacier National Park. Have done this hike several times before in May. I was hoping to see some avalanches but did not. Not much snow left. It's a easy hike.
Did see a grizzly sow and two cubs, also a black bear sow with two cubs. Carried 4 year old on my shoulders up and back.
