Day 2– Bow Glacier Falls

The second hiking day of our trip was out to Bow Glacier Falls.  On the drive to the hike, we saw two black bears by the side of the road.  This hike started at Bow Lake, which amazed all of us with its beautiful color.  We took Stefan on this 6 mile hike.  He did really well and was talking the whole time.  He was especially fascinated by the fast-moving river and trees.  A couple of neat things along the way were passing by a spectacular slot canyon, catching sight of a marmot, and eventually ending up at the base of the waterfall, which is fed by a glacier above.
