Leaving Two Medicine campground (and the bear canister) behind, the trial went up onto an exposed ridge with winds that nearly knocked me off my feet. It’s times like this I’m glad to have a large body to weigh me down. A lighter hiker would have been blown right off the mountain! I’ll have to send a thank you letter to the Stone Brewing Company for saving my life.A short 10 miles brought us to East Glacier for a beer on the porch and a meal at the Whistlestop Restaurant. Found the Backpacker’s Inn hostel and got a bunk. I hate paying for lodging, but there aren’t a lot of camping spots in town.
