Apparently, it's not unusual for trails to be snow-covered, even up to mid-July. This hike was our most challenging so far; 11 miles, with 2,000 feet of elevation gain. Plus, the ranger had the "need for speed" and we completed it two hours ahead of schedule.
This year marks the 75th anniversry of Waterton-Glacier Peace Park. We went on a hike with a ranger from U.S., and and interpreter from Canada.

The chalet has a kitchen and dining room, with a woodburning stove. The kitchen is to be used by lodgers to cook their meals (which they pack in). No running water, heat, or electricity. Lodgers bring their own sleeping bags, flashlights, and water can be fetched (and purified) from a nearby primitive camp area.
