This little ditty has been on my “to do” list for years. But because of it’s length it was never “worth the drive”. It needed to be on the way home or on the way to somewhere… Finally – with MIL in town, I had a “reason” to do it! Woot!
Length: .75 miles (yup – 1.5 miles round trip)
Difficulty: Medium to Strenuous (due to mostly an uphill trek on rocks)
Time: under an hour (going slow to not kill MIL since we were at 9K feet)
Rating: Great hike! Wonderful place to bring a book, find a rock and enjoy your morning. afternoon.
Note: Parking lot prior to hike is large, parking lot after is closer but holds less cars. Both are $5. There are alot of people, dogs and kids, go early to avoid!
St. Mary’s Glacier
According to the sign, 3/4 of a mile to the glacier. Unfortunately in Colorado – it really just looks like snow in August!
The views were amazing and the wind was whipping.
Such a beautiful place, can’t wait to come back and enjoy a day, with a picnic and a book!
