About this photo»
- Place: Scenic Point Trail, Glacier National Park in Montana

- Why it’s one of my favorites: Because I live just outside Glacier, we have favorite hikes we do annually. Scenic Point is one of the early ones each year, because it’s snow-free in June and always a thrill to be back up in the alpine world looking down on scenery. Plus the red argillite rock slabs at the point are always so striking.

National parks are in my DNA. My great-grandparents honeymooned in Yellowstone back when touring was only via horse and carriage. My father worked summers at Mount Rainier before I was born, and he and my mother carried me on my first hike there at 6 months old. That was only a precursor to growing up hiking and backpacking in national parks. Later, I served as a hiking and backpacking guide for a decade in Glacier. I live right outside Glacier and write guidebooks about national parks for Moon Travel Guides. —Written by Becky Lomax
