Cool story. I also summitted Cleveland last year. The elk brats looked delicious. It is probably not the best idea to eat glacier lillies in the park. They are not on the "approved" list of consumable foods from the NPS. I have eaten them while hiking and climbing in other areas of the regions and they are delicious! Climb on and great report. That same family group was near the summit when we were there as well but we did not see them. We were warned about them by another group of climbers who ran into them below the summit.
I own a pair of these and they are bomber. Perhaps a bit too heavy for warm days above 45 degrees but man do these pants wear well. They protect from occassional scrapes and nasty leg-ripping sticks as well as shed a small amount of water. They are not water-proof but still they can stand up to a little moisture and dry rather quickly. They are my go-to pant when I am out climbing and scrambling in northwestern Montana.
If you get a pair of these pants you will not be disappointed!
