Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

I'm pretty sure the NPS has got lots of people thinking about this problem and working on it, and they are trying to think through a LOT of different scenarios and Phases and situations, that in all likelihood are going to change a lot between now and then. I think they are trying to come up with so...

Re: Thinking Out Loud for 2020

I wonder how they are going to do the meals at Sperry? Its pretty tight quarters in the dining room, no way they could maintain social distancing during dinners. Breakfast might work ok. Maybe they will limit how many people can stay at the lodge at any time, so the dining room won't be too crowded...

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. I wonder if, in order to maintain social distancing requirements in the dining room, they won't be able to operate at full capac...

Re: Flathead County withdraws from Park Shuttle System

Is there any more news on the status of the free shuttle along Going to the Sun Road for 2020?
It would be good to know if there will or won't be a shuttle system when making plans...

Similarly with the Waterton passenger boat, and whether hikers will be able to dis-embarked at Goat Haunt?

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

Thanks for a great trip report and pics, glad you were able to go from the depths of despair to the glories of Glacier! I was also on that 2018 backpack that Teapot mention, and it also makes me want to see those places again, now I just need to figure out how to do it but avoid the "I'm not dead ye...

Re: Sleeping pads for the vertically challenged

My Nemo has valves at both ends, I imagine that would have complicated the process a bit.

Xanterra is the concessionaire for Zion and Forever Resorts was the concessionaire for Bryce Canyon.. In Zion, prices were high and it seemed like a fast food place.... In Bryce things were more ...
