Glacier National Park: Avalanche Lake 1000 Piece Puzzle
Photographer: Christina Adele
Skill Level: Moderate
Nestled on the west side of Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful hikes in the country: Avalanche Lake, sitting pretty at an elevation of 3,905 feet. The hike is a 5.9 mile round trip, with an elevation gain of 757 feet, and is rated moderately difficult. Believed to be the most popular hike in the park, it begins on a boardwalk trail named Trail of The Cedars. The first section of the hike enjoys fine views of Avalanche Creek. Next, the spur trail leading to Avalanche takes you deeper into the forest, traveling through a forest of red cedars, larches and western hemlocks, and finally leads to photogenic Avalanche Lake. The lake’s turquoise blue waters are due to the abundance of avalanches that fall down the Sperry Glacier, the mountain that sits behind the lake. The lake itself is a mile and a half long with a depth of 54 feet in some sections, which is an impressive depth for its relatively smaller size. The stunning mountains behind the lake showcase rivers flowing down the sides. A lush green forest fills the surrounding areas. When the sun hits just right, you can see the snow still sitting on the top of the peak. It’s an absolutely scenic and beautiful visual. For more great views of Avalanche Creek, return via the Trail of the Cedars.
All of our 1000 Piece puzzles measure 27.6 x 19.7 inches when completed. They are cut with an irregular piece shape to aid and strenthen your assembly quest, as well as produce an interlock so tight you can pick it up and flip it over (gently) without losing a piece. (Watch this and see!) They are manufactured using 100% Recycled Grade A chipboard, 1/16 inch thick resulting in sturdy, durable pieces that wont bend or break easily, and mated to a premium Matte finished print. They are then cut using 2 different presses, each going a different direction. This ensures your pieces are always fully cut, not stuck together so you have to tear them apart, damaging your pieces.
