Going here was like getting to be in paradise for a little bit! The day we went was sunny and beautiful. Being from Texas the altitude was sort of getting to me, and the fact that I am not in the greatest shape in the world, BUT I made it to Sky Pond. We started out at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead and did the trip in six and a half hours round trip. That included having our picnic lunch, taking a ton of pictures, and my stopping to rest A LOT. The climb up the side of waterfall did somewhat scare me because I was climbing in tennis shoes (not the best idea) and climbing on wet rocks was scary (to me). When we got to the top what we at first thought was Sky Pond was actually Lake of Glass. You have to walk BEHIND this and past the other rocks to reach Sky Pond. Totally worth it. I felt like I actually EARNED getting to see this. It is something I will always remember and be proud that I did. Make sure to pack water, snacks and food if you want lunch. There are no bathrooms past the trailhead so either go before you start the hike, or find a secluded spot if you have to go. The people we talked to on the trails were super nice. It was a great day!
