Mount Brown
Mount Brown (8,565 feet) is located near Lake McDonald, and it offers great views of the Sperry Glacier and well as the Logan Pass Area, Avalanche Lake, Lake McDonald and Glacier Park's Livingston Range.  To get to the peak, you first must hike to the Mount Brown Lookout (trailhead located at Lake McDonald Lodge) and then head across a large saddle to begin the climb. 

By the time you've reached the summit, you've gained over 5,400 vertical feet in less than six miles!

A view of the Mountain...

This is a view from Reynolds Mountain on Logan Pass, and it gives you a look at Mount Brown from a distance.  Note Lake McDonald directly behind Mount Brown.  Keep in mind the other peaks noted in this photo because you'll see them from the summit of Brown.  (The camera is facing west)

Here's another look at Mount Brown from Lake McDonald at Apgar.  It's one of the prominent peaks along the famous Lake McDonald skyline. (The camera is facing east)

Views from the Summit...

This is the classic view to the north from the summit of Mount Brown.  We are over 5,000 vertical feet from the valley floor!  The Going-to-the-Sun Road winds along this river, heading up to the west side of the divide.  The tall peak to the left is Mount Vaught, and the peak to the right is Heavens Peak.  Both peaks are part of Glacier Park's Livingston Range.

The skies were clear when we begin the actual climb (see photo), but by the time we reached the summit, clouds started moving in.   Thankfully the storm (which was not in the forecast) waited until we reached lower ground.
