East from Revelstoke was Glacier National Park. Tall hemlock and cedars lined the path of Hemlock Grove Boardwalk, a setting made perfect because no one else was there on that early morning. Entering a different part of the park, I walked over the Llicillewaet River hoping for a glimpse of the glacier of the same name.
Following the river for a couple of kilometers, Great Glacier came in sight so I switched to the Asulkan Valley Trail until I caught sight of Grand Glacier. The vegetation was diverse. Beneath the firs were wild flowers, different ferns, and other broad leaf plants.
