We drove upwards to Paradise, which had a gorgeous visitor's center and all sorts of tourists. We checked in with a ranger to ask about the hike I wanted to do and away we went. There was a lot of snow on the mountain still and lots of wild flowers popping up. It was a stunning hike all the way and all the way down. This one was about 2.5 miles, with a 900' elevation gain. We hiked to the Glacier Vista and back down and made it a loop. It's the hiking that made this trip so worthwhile. Holly and Greta did so great doing 2 good sized hikes in one day.
