Re: One Star Glacier Reviews

I love it!! Spread the word!! GNP is the pits, so do not go there! Hopefully the clueless idiots who spoil the park will start staying away.... Yes, just horrible and hopelessly uncivilized. Wicked waste of money. Go to Disneyworld or Branson instead. At least Disney will ensure that the glaciers a...

Re: Glacier before the Permit system

Thanks very much for pointing out that paper which appears to have a lot of interesting information. I was probably under the impression that the permit system started in 1971 or 72 because there was so much talk about it at the time. I only went backcountry camping once in those years (Lake Ellen W...

Re: Glacier before the Permit system

I am trying to think when the permit system for the backcountry campsites first began. It wasn't in effect in 1970, the year of this newspaper item which was also the first year I worked at Lake McDonald. I think it must have started in 1971 or 1972. (I think that 1971 was also the year that the boa...

Glacier before the Permit system

An interesting item in the yesterdays column in the Hungry Horse News provides a view of what the situation was just before the permit system: "July 31, 1970 Heavy use in Glacier’s backcountry was reported, with 124 people camped at Elizabeth Lake. The campground is still one of the most popular cam...

Re: Mountain goats

I have seen goats do this on Mount Brown years ago where there was a herd of 20 or so goats hanging around the lookout. Two goats started circling each other quite close up until one goat was driven off. They seemed quite intense and paid no attention to me or the other goats. Glad I was not in the ...
