This past July I my boyfriend and I took a week off to go to Glacier National Park. I had wanted to travel there for a while due to the plentiful opportunities for backpackers. And boy, I was not disappointed.
We also spent a bit of time in a lesser explored section of the park known as the North Fork area. The topography is less severe, and the roads are terrible, I think both of which cause people to shy away. I, however, found it an extremely relaxing place to spend a couple days.
On our last full day in the park we decided to hike in to a lakeside campsite. It was kind of slim pickings, so we had to just go with what was available. Well, an all day, mostly uphill hike with a heavy backpack and 90+ degree weather did not bode well for me. I got what I think was heat exhaustion and my boyfriend suggested we hunker down right where we were for the night. As you can see, cooking dinner was not ideal.
