Hiking in Glacier

Clark emailed these photos to me of a hike he went on when he was visiting home a few weeks ago. It was a short visit, but he packed in activities for every waking moment. He is very good at that! No lie!

"This hike was to Mt.Siyeh in Glacier National Park. It has 4,000 foot sheer cliffs at the top and is one of the highest peaks in the park. Before getting to the top there was alot of shale to get past which made the hike more interesting."
"We started the hike at about 8 am after after driving an hour from home. We made it to the summit around 12:30 and stayed up at the top for about three hours just hanging out, taking pictures, napping and eating. It was a blast!" "The other guys in the pictures are Nate who is out here (BYU-Hawaii) going to school now and the other guy in the stripes is Tyler. It was such a great time and I hope to do it again."
After Clark got home he said it was a n awesome hike with some very exciting moments. He does do a lot of hiking and said that this was a tough hike. And he was pretty sore for a few days. I can't imagine there being too many simalarities between hiking in Hawaii (Oahu) and hiking in Glacier, but I am sure specatular just the same!

Very nice indeed! I am wondering though who took the picture of the 3 of them from across the peak? Did Clark just "toss" his camera over?
