Lake Solitude is a popular hike in Grand Teton National Park that offers incredible views of Grand Teton, Cascade Canyon, and the surrounding peaks. It can be accessed via the Jenny Lake Trailhead or you can take a boat shuttle to the beginning of the Cascade Canyon Trail on the west side of Jenny Lake. Taking the shuttle will shave 2 miles off the hike each way. We opted for an early shuttle ride and found the trail relatively empty, and the hike to be truly remarkable.

“The Narrows” is the narrowest section of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park. Its walls can reach up to 1000 feet high and can sometimes be only 20 or 30 feet apart – it’s an amazing visual experience and is one of the most popular destinations in the park.
Grinnell Glacier Trail, located in the Many Glacier area, is one of the most popular hikes in Glacier National Park, and for good reason. Its vistas are incredible (and well documented online) and the trail is well maintained and can be hiked if you are in reasonable shape.
A black bear sow and three cubs entered our campsite in Many Glacier Campground early one morning. To say we were a bit surprised would be an understatement. Fortunately, neither the bears our family were hurt and all turned out well. What an experience!
