Cobalt Lake Glacier National Park MT Track (7/10/15, 7:50:57AM)
Campground was very buggy. Wildflowers especially Red Monkey Flower were in full bloom.
Pano photo of Cobalt Lake is on my hiking website.
Temperature was very hot during the day and chilly just before dawn. I was very surprised at the amount of snow on the far side of Cobalt Lake. I have hiked this trail every year for the last ten years & this was the most snow of any of those hikes. Note: 2011 was a record snow year and I didn't get to the lake until September.
The 'icebergs' when they separated from the main snow field created a loud cracking sound which could be heard at the main Two Medicine Campground.
