Glen Lake is located between Victor and Stevensville in the Bitterroot Valley. More precisely, it’s in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, which is more than 1.3 million acres of roadless forest area along the Montana-Idaho border. The area was created in 1964 with the Wilderness Act and is one of the largest wilderness area in the country.
You can find some Glen Lake images on this Summit Post article about Glen Lake and another one on the site that shows Hidden Lake. You can also find a bit of information on the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness here.
For now, let’s get into some pictures I took.
The lakes, as well as Glen Lake, are surrounded by rock pinnacles, which are called gendarmes. The top of these rocks are called arêtes, which means a sharp mountain ridge. They look like jagged teeth, perhaps the kind you’d see on an old and rusted saw.
A 2012 blog called Montana Bushcraft and Country Living has a lot of great images of Glen Lake, plus some images of Hidden Lake.
