... but would love to come back another time. Could have spent a day here. The walk wasn't too easy, but wasn't too difficult either. However, I'm not sure if it'd be as rewarding as the glaciers trail in terms of scenery.

Was a few meters deep in snow and ice when I went, would love to go when the wild flowers are out. Really breathtaking scenery, I recommend going outside of regular tourist hours to really appreciate it.

Very nice views on the glacier and a nice, sometimes heavy hike in between flowers. The view to the surrounding mountais was perfect.
