Further east than Mount Revelstoke National Park was Glacier National Park established in 1886. 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 Illecillewaet River hoping for a glimpse of the the Illecillewaet Glacier that had been, and still is one of the main attractions of the park. (See featured image)
Following the river for a couple of kilometers, the glacier came in sight so I switched and hiked the Asulkan Valley Trail until I caught a glimpse of Grand Glacier. The vegetation was diverse. Beneath the firs were wild flowers, different ferns, and other broad leaf plants.
