  • A Day of Beginnings

    Everyone has days in their lives that hold significance such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, the passing of loved ones. They are days to reflect on milestones, life changing events and loved ones. For me, one of the biggest is May 17th. On May 17th, 2011, I started my hiking project along McDonald Creek. It was […]

  • Many Glacier in May – 2013

    As soon as roads start opening up in Glacier National Park, it’s fun to head on out and see what’s going on. In places like Many Glacier, you’ll find no crowds and animals that are looking for food as the long winter releases its icy grip. You’ll also find more snow than you probably were […]

  • Feature Friday – TJ Fallon

    One of the greatest things about my project has been the people that I’ve met. TJ followed me on my journey in 2011 and contacted me about hitting the trail together. We ended up finally hiking together on Loon Day last year where we ended up seeing 8 loons (6 all together in Trout Lake). This […]

  • The Frustrations of Spring

    Glacier National Park is more than Going-to-the-Sun Road, but the progress of the plowing of the road is a good indicator as to how much of the Park is accessible to hiking. At the end of most Aprils, the indicator usually feels pretty depressing. Most of the roads are closed and snow still has its […]

  • Using Bear Spray while Hiking

    I’ve wanted to fire a can of bear spray for some time. I spend enough time in grizzly bear country that I should at least test it before I have a real need to. For some reason, I never got around to it until this video. I had seen some videos on bear spray and […]

  • Bluebird day on Camas Road

    Got the word a little bit ago that the Camas Road was open to driving and went up with my buddy TJ Fallon*. Camas Road is a nice little paved road that shows off the Lewiston Range up the North Fork of Glacier National Park. The weather was dodgy, as it always is in Spring. […]

  • Easter Weekend 2013

    I’m getting antsy for hiking with all of the beautiful weather we’ve been having so my wife and I headed up to Glacier National Park again on Saturday of Easter weekend. While we didn’t see anything big (although we did see wolf, bear and moose tracks) we saw lots of beautiful scenery and loads of […]

  • Feature Friday – Tyler Rasmussen

    I first met Tyler with an email he shot me right before my hiking project got into full swing in May of 2011. In the almost two years since, he’s become quite the blogger and I love reading his stories. His great combination of writing and photos is a wonderful balance. His adventures are great, […]

  • Blakiston Creek Trail – Waterton Lakes National Park

    The Blakiston Creek Trail trailhead in Waterton Lakes National Park, is right before the bridge over Blakiston Creek as you make your way to the Crandell Lake trailhead. This trail follows Blakiston Creek on the north side between the creek and the Red Rock Parkway. It starts out in fairly dense foliage, then comes out […]

  • Cameron Lake – Waterton Lakes National Park

    At the end of the Akamina Parkway in Waterton Lakes National Park, you find the beautiful Cameron Lake. There are a few trails that start from the parking lot. The trail that runs along the lake is a nice level hiking path that is just over a mile long. It hugs the lake nicely and […]
