- Activity of the day: We went on the hands-down-most-gorgeous hike that I have ever been on in my entire life. We hiked the Highline Trail from Logan Pass to The Loop. The 11.6 mile trail followed the edge of a series of mountains. We hiked at 7000 feet for most of the hike, cresting at the Granite Park Chalet. After arriving at the top, we plummeted 2,200 feet in 4 miles to arrive at The Loop. This trail is utterly amazing - flowered meadows and plentiful wildlife are found around each bend.

- Animals of the day: Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep, Marmots, Pika, White-Tailed Bucks and...a GRIZZLY (from our car with no time for pictures)!

- Question of the day (asked multiple times): "Where are your parents?"
