Swan Rangers Hike Sixmile Mountain

Nine Swan Rangers hiked up Sixmile Mountain Saturday, July 21, under a beautiful sunny sky with cool breezes. It doesn't get much better than that!

Yesterday's rain cleared the air and the Rangers were able to see across the Bob Marshall Wilderness to peaks along the Rocky Mountain Front, not to mention peaks in Glacier National Park!

The Sixmile Trail up to Alpine Trail #7 had been cleared by chain saw and the Rangers cleared almost all the dead-fall and leaners from there on up to the peak. The entire trail is free of snow, a bit of a pleasant surprise!
