Piegan Mountain
Piegan Mountain (9,220 feet) is located just northeast of Logan Pass, providing excellent views of the Logan Pass Area as well as the Jackson/Blackfoot Glacial Complex, Mount Siyeh, Heavens Peak and Mount Gould.    In otherwords, the views are tremendous all the way around!

The following photos are selections from two seperate days on the summit, two years apart.  On one of our trips to the summit, we encountered mountain goats on the summit, a Marmot standing on the summit cairn, and a herd of bighorn sheep on the way down off the saddle!  It was definitely the day for not only seeing wonderful scenery, but enjoying incredible animals as well.
 
A view of the Mountain...

This is a straight on view of the east slope of the Lewis Range.  There are so many peaks that we could fill up the page listing them all.  The closest peak that you see is Mount Gould.  Mount Merritt and Mount Cleveland are just a few stacked in a line northward along the continental divide.

This is a view from the saddle that lies between Piegan and Pollock Mountains.  To climb either mountain, you first must get to this saddle.  By the way, the views from the saddle are fantastic!
