Glacier's Two Med: Cobalt Lake July 5, 2014

Katie at Cobalt Lake in Glacier.  The last mile of this 12 mile trek was snow covered and we made our way by kick-stepping
I hadn't done this hike since climbing Mount Rockwell more than 10 years ago.
It is quite simple when the conditions are right ---- hike along the South Trail on Middle Two Medicine Lake and head toward Rockwell Falls.   Cobalt Lake is another several miles beyond,  a round trip of 12 miles and an ascent of more than 2,000 feet.
This year the trail was covered with lots of snow for the final two miles of the hike, making the going difficult.  There were times I wondered if we would even make it.
We persevered and I'm glad we did.
