There ain't no mountain high enough for some people. Look how high these hikers are above Hungry Horse Reservoir!

At 7,528 feet above sea level, Mt. Aeneas is one of the highest points in the northern Swan Range and is named after Kootenai Chief Aeneas Paul. This is a good spot to look for mountain goats as they scramble over the rocks and feed in alpine meadows.
