As part of my series of favorite places, another would be the Grinnell Glacier Overlook.  To get here you must either traverse the majority of the Highline Trail from Logan Pass or up the steep Loop Trail to access the Highline at the Granite Park Chalet.  Either way it’s a healthy hike just to the very steep Grinnell Glacier Overlook Trail.

Having said that, at the summit it feels like you are on top of the world as you look down upon the Grinnell Glacier and the ice floes in the alpine lake caused by its snowmelt.   I hope you enjoy this video and can also feel the exhilaration of being on top of the world.
