Re: G9: 8/28-9/14, 2014..."Back Home Again"

Thanks for a great view, would you consider going earlier to avoid the snow? I have been at Glacier this time of year, every year since 2008. This was the most snow that I have seen, I normally see flakes in the air a few days but nothing like this. I've also been to Glacier twice in July, I strong...

Re: My drinking club has a hiking problem.

The food storage pictures reminded me of the number of Campers in national parks who think they can just hang anything on a tree and be bear safe, In ROMO (where I was this summer for 8 weeks)on more than one occasion campers incorrectly hung food in inappropriate places and a black bear found it an...

Re: Backcountry Fishing

Based on what we have seen in other parks some strange things can go on in the food prep area. (I have been a park host twice (with round three this summer at ROMO :) starting in July), Some of the items left behind in the other park I was at in the food area have been interesting to say the least, ...
