Descent down Grinnell Trail in Many Glacier at Glacier National Park

The climb up the Grinnell Glacier Trail was a pleasant and sunny jaunt, shared with so many people I felt as if I could be at Disney World.

The descent, though, was a rainy and moody trek down slippery rocks, through lonesome wilderness. It felt much more like an adventure than the hike up. I was somewhat worried, a bit more sodden and annoyed, but mostly excited.
