Re: September 2020

Thanks for posting your trip report. It's nice to see and here about the park even though I haven't been there in years. The number of visitors in September kind of makes me wonder what kind of future the park will have.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Fun watching your video on the Highline trail! The bighorns were interesting as well as the fat goat. My favorite part was when you saw the pika. I haven't seen many of those in my travels. Thanks for posting for us who can't be there this year! :D https://photos.smugmug.com/Granite-Park-Chalet-Sep...

Re: Beartooth Pass

A few years ago I was up there hiking in mid August and it was snowing. So I guess you have to be prepared for any type of weather even in summer.

Re: Can't decide between two backcountry hikes, need help!

Also keep in mind that transportation logistics are VERY difficult if you get an itinerary where you begin at HOL and end at BOW or vice versa. Hitching is possible but that late in the year could be difficult.[/b] I think he's looking to do an in and out from Bowman lake TH. Hiking to Brown pass, ...

Re: Trail Runner Collides with Bear

A few years back, a trail runner nearly collided with me on the trail a few miles from Goat Haunt. She sort of burst through a bunch over grown bushes and surprised me as I was hiking. I didn't hear her coming. At the time, I thought it would have been a bad situation if there had been a bear there ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I really like the first two images from your last post, Pete. They are definitely print worthy and probably poster worthy. I rarely see the air in Glacier that clear when I visit nowadays. Actually, the last time I saw a day that clear in Glacier was probably before 2010.

Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

Would you believe there were people TENT CAMPING at the head of the lake. I saw two, maybe three tents on that big gravel beach that is on the left as you view the upper end of the lake. I had my new wide angle lens, but it's sharp so I'll post a pic later. I reported it to a Ranger who notified th...

Re: Many Glacier campsite

The Glacier Guides preference over regular backcountry users doesn't make sense even from a social distancing perspective. The Glacier Guide groups consist of people from separate parties and the guides themselves are also separate individuals. So take a bunch of people not related to each other and...

In my mind, here are the factors: Increased availability +No advanced reservations - 2x the number of sites available for walk-in +Less hikers due to uncertainty concerns (availability, wanting fixed plan, etc) +Less hikers due to travel concerns (not wanting to get sick, not wanting to get others ...

Doesn't Granite Park Chalet have dormatory style sleeping quarters? How would people social distance while sleeping in a dorm?

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

This is a bummer, I was hoping they would start processing permits again. Seeing that my application was for August, I thought that perhaps I might still get some backpacking in the park this year.
