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 […]

    Swiftcurrent Pass and Lookout Revisited – August 2012

    When I went to hike up to Swiftcurrent Lookout as part of my project to hike all 734 miles of trail in Glacier National Park in the summer of 2011, I had the misfortune of having bad weather so I didn’t get to catch it in all of its majesty. In my blog, I said […]

    Coal Nyack Loop

    While most visitors to Glacier National Park stay around Going to the Sun Road with ventures to Many Glacier and Two Medicine, the furthest north and the furthest south tend to get the least amount of attention.
