Re: Sad News - David Parker has passed away

Debbie - So sorry for your loss. Dave truly built a great community here which has led to many lifelong friendships that otherwise would never have happened. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet you and him and thank you both for all of you've done for the members of this site. I hop...

Not sure why Glacier has chosen not to.
What's your route in NCNP? We backpacked there last summer and had a great trip (Copper Ridge - Chilliwack River Loop).

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

Yellowstone approved my dad's permit yesterday, so at least they're working and proceeding like there will be a backcountry season. Yes, I received a permit for Yellowstone yesterday as well! It was originally a backup plan, but we got the itinerary that I wanted and the schedule (assuming the park...

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

I got approved for 2 nights at Gunsight Lake. This lines up with a 2 night Sperry reservation that we have for 2 nights afterward. The reservation is for the last week of July, so the idea is to change the second night at GUN to ELL, should ELL open up early. It will be interesting to see how thing...

Re: 2020 Backcountry Permits

I submitted an application for a trip with a pretty wide date range. I also applied for a permit for the Enchantments (denied this morning) and one for Yellowstone. So hoping either Glacier or Yellowstone comes through! Good luck!

Deuces Wild: A Poo with a View in America's National Parks

So there's been a running joke with several other chatters over the years about making a coffee book featuring photos of the views from pit toilets (or nearby) across the park. This summer, I wasn't lucky enough to get back to Glacier, but was able to spend 8 days backpacking in the North Cascades. ...

Great pics, Pete! Since my last few visits have been smoke fests due to the fire, I'm really jealous of the beautiful skies and great visibility. Thanks for sharing!

Re: 2019 "Snaps" Around Gracier National Park...plus

Thanks again Jason for showing me ShangriLa. That was a pretty special day. Wasn't that the trip you were supposed to do one of the 10K peaks? Mt Merritt maybe? Did we meet Paul briefly down by the Swiftcurrent cabins when we finished the hike? pete :wink: We probably did meet up with Paul, I belie...

Re: 2019 "Snaps" Around Gracier National Park...plus

Pete, I have great memories of taking you up there years ago. I think that was the first time we managed to meet up! And have definitely enjoyed catching up on this in the years since. I'm pretty sure I still have some of the same pictures on my computer. I'll try to find them and email you a few mo...

Re: 2019 Backcountry Permits

I called the backcountry office today and someone answered the phone! I also had a ranger call me directly as I had left a message last week. I'm guessing that must mean they must be getting close to finishing all of the lottery applications. Anyways, they said there were over 3300 applications this...

Re: 2019 Backcountry Permits

UPK-BOU-BOU-KIN Exactly what I asked for. :D Two nights at BOU gives me time to do Boulder Peak and to hike down to HOL to look around and take pics. Photography is the primary goal of this trip. A night at HOL would have been nice but two nights at BOU also means not having to break and set up cam...
