With three decent hikes the previous three days, and knowing our minimum hike (yesterday) was four miles down to the shuttle with a 2,200′ elevation loss (a different type of leg strain), we weren’t sure the additional three-plus miles (round trip) and 1,000′ up (and 1,000′ down) to Grinnell Glacier Overlook was in the cards for us.

It was.
