At the top of the pass I took a 2-1/2 mile side hike up to the top of Swiftcurrent Mountain Fire Tower with outstanding 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Outstanding!
Next I headed down to check out the Granite Park Chalet Hut, one of only two remaining huts in the park. Talked with two maintenance men who were shutting it down for the season.
From here it was a short hike to Granite Park backcountry site for the night. Shared camp with two other groups of two. Lots of animal sounds wandering around camp about 1am including beside my tent. Deer or elk?
