Setting off on the Swiftcurrent Pass trail, Many Glaciers Region of Glacier NP.
Rain predicted starting at about 1PM. Waited until about 10:30, hoping for a bit of clearing, but no luck. Covered up with rain gear and headed out.
My hike today was just to Redrock Falls. Too tired from yesterday's hike!
