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...

Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

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 ...

Re: Thinking Out Loud for 2020

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.

Article: Grizzly bear death rates on the rise

The article references bear deaths along the railroad tracks near Glacier National Park. I never knew the death rates were that high.
