Re: Glacier Park in the 50s

oops, that is Cameron Falls. I knew something wasn't quite right and as I go thru old family photos, I realize that now. Sorry about the confusion.

Today I stumbled across another photo they took in 1953 near the Marias River bridge crossing and realized we had done the hike in 2017.

Re: Howe Ridge Fire

Meanwhile, mature trees that had managed to survive previous burns also survived Howe Ridge, particularly mature larch, whose thick bark makes them fire adapted and fire resistant. On the north side of the fire in particular, this has resulted in a meadowy forest, with about a 50 to 75 percent surv...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Thx Pete, last two sets of photos are so nice. Like the others here that won't get there this year; once again, we have to vicariously enjoy the Park through your eyes and lens.

Re: 2019 Sep Trip

I agree with Pete. Nice blog and wonderful photos. The one with the boat really stood out for me too.

Pictures were smaller so made it hard to really enjoy them... at least for me; many of your photos need to be pondered. Unless there is a way to make them bigger; I did increase font to 150%.

I agree with your assessment. I am very fussy about my water and this works for me. Color of course, if pretty fab too.

Re: Sad News - David Parker has passed away

I am so sorry for your loss, Debby. My heart goes out to you. I have never met Dave, but by creating this board, he has greatly enriched my life, and I’m sure many feel the same way. Even though the board is not as active as it was in the past, I would greatly miss it if it no longer existed. I hav...

Re: Sperry and Granite Park set to reopen

I'm still amazed no one has canceled their reservations for either Chalet. Can't blame them, of course, but since so much else is being cancelled, I'm a little surprised.

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

well this sucks :( . Each year that I get older, this backpacking thing is harder and harder to do. I hate to lose a whole summer. Well the only silver lining, I don't have to worry about training for it as aggressively and Tina doesn't have to worry about 14-day quarantines in Canada and USA. Altho...

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

We hope our trips align date wise so we can swap keys. that would be awesome! One of the requests Tina and I put in for was KOO FIF FIF STO in August. We have t...

Re: Grand Canyon 2018

I've had the hard pleasure of going in and out of the canyon but never in one day; always overnites. You captured it beautifully; very nice photos. Your picture down by the Black Bridge you mention a palm tree but that is actually a yucca plant. You really made the most of your trip. None of those h...

Re: Bowman, Hole in the Wall, Upper Kintla - 8/24-27/2019

I wonder if that was Molly that you saw. She and her little cubs were hanging around that area in 2017, maybe this is a new batch you saw. We decided to name her after Wendy's mother because she had two kids. Good thing she didn't have three cubs or her name would have been Meradel :lol: . Anyway, w...
