We took the cruise and really enjoyed going to the island. Take some time to walk and meditate. We even watched a grizzly feeding on buffalo berries!

The blue hues of this lake are like nothing you've ever seen before. Make sure you climb to the top of the rock pile. The views are worth the climb.
