  • Glacier View and Made in Montana Tradeshow

    Made in Montana

  • The Eagle and The Chickadee

  • “Touristy Spots” – DVD Excerpt

    Before my Hike 734 project, I tended to avoid places where droves of Glacier’s visitors would go to escape the crowds. Part of this was for good reason and part of this was my arrogance. The trouble was, not only did I have an elitist attitude, but I also robbed myself of some incredible spots. […]
