  • Stanton Mountain 2014

    Stanton Mountain 2014

    Stanton Mountain stands at the head of Lake McDonald solidifying the iconic view from Apgar. It’s south facing slope melts out earlier than other peaks in Glacier National Park making it a great candidate for an early season summit. I went up with my friends Mark and Ashley Sanders as well as my favorite hiking partner […]

  • Rockwell Falls

    Rockwell Falls

    While my love for the Two Medicine area tends to focus on the amazing ridge walks and open views, places like Rockwell Falls add another amazing layer. This wonderful waterfall, a little over three miles from the Two Medicine boat dock, is a nice level walk to the beautiful main falls that looks like a […]

  • Cracker Lake 2014

    Cracker Lake 2014

    While I had been to Cracker Lake a couple of times, my wife Kristen had not. We decided to celebrate the 4th of July in the American idea of National Parks and camp at the lake. We ended up with a beautiful lake, mountain goats, a pika, snowshoe hare, and loads of wildflowers. A note […]

  • Otokomi Lake 2014

    Otokomi Lake 2014

    Snuck out to the St. Mary area to hike to the beautiful Otokomi Lake. The hike up bounces between Rose Creek which starts out of view, then bubbles and pools right next to the trail. As you gain elevation, Rose Creek gives way to nice views of Goat Mountain. Once again the birds were singing […]

  • Logan Pass Opening 2014

    Logan Pass Opening 2014

    It’s finally here! Going-to-the-Sun Road is officially open all the way up and over Logan Pass in 2014. It has been a higher than normal snowpack for spring, so it’s taken a bit, but the Park Service has been working like crazy to open it up. While hiking in the high country will be limited, […]

  • Running Eagle Falls 2014

    Running Eagle Falls 2014

    It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I’ve not been out much due to the crazy amounts of rain we received. I have to admit I’ve become a bit of a fair-weather hiker. In addition to that, we got a little water in our basement, so that’s been taking up some time (and money). My […]

  • Mt Brown Lookout Speed 2014

    Mt Brown Lookout Speed 2014

    Had a window of time and weather to quickly head up to Mt. Brown Lookout on June 16th, 2014. I knew the weather was changing for a few days and it was going to start that afternoon. I picked up my running pack, went super light and headed up the almost 5.5 miles and 4,200 […]

  • East Side Big Lakes

    East Side Big Lakes

    Two of the bigger lakes on the east side of Glacier National Park are Lake Sherburne and St. Mary Lake. Both are great spots to look for wildlife. I was dropping off some more of my Day Hikes Map Guides to some of my resellers and decided to do a common loon survey at the […]

  • Apgar Lookout Bushwhack

    Apgar Lookout Bushwhack

    Went out for a little off-trail adventure that included Apgar Lookout, then a ridge walk. Our destination was a ways down the ridge and our spirits were broken by downfall. We decided to turn back. This, of course, didn’t mean we had a terrible day. We saw loads of flowers, birds, a mule deer to […]
