  • Climbing Mt Jackson 2022

    Climbing Mt Jackson 2022

    Of all of Glacier National Park’s sublime summits, only six of them crest over the 10,000 foot mark. Mt Jackson, with its long, rounded ridge is one of those summits and it is as rewarding as it is a long grind. While you could (and probably should) break it up into two days by camping […]

  • Cosley Lake Looning 2022

    Cosley Lake Looning 2022

    The Belly River area of Glacier National Park is such a fantastic background location. We headed out to do Common Loon surveys at Cosley Lake and Glenns Lake which is up in the Mokowanis River drainage. Perfect weather, wildflowers, big mountains, a roaring waterfall, and pristine lakes (with not TOO many mosquitos) made for a […]

  • Grinnell Lake – Spring 2019

    Grinnell Lake – Spring 2019

    As part of Glacier National Park’s Harlequin Duck project, a few of us headed over to the east side of the park to look for Harlequin Ducks. Sean (one of the park’s wildlife techs) and I went up to Grinnell Lake in the Many Glacier area of the park. While we didn’t find any Harlequins, […]

  • Not so fast, Winter

    Not so fast, Winter

    We opened the garage door to head out to Glacier National Park when Kristen said, “I don’t think I have enough clothes on. It’s cold.” It was a chilly morning. The clear skies that were beckoning us to get outside had also helped drive down the temperatures. We’re not ready for winter. With no specific […]

  • Grinnell Glacier 2018

    Grinnell Glacier 2018

    Grinnell Glacier sits at the head of the Grinnell Creek drainage and is the easiest glacier in Glacier National Park to day hike too. Even with its popularity, this gorgeous hike is also a perfect place to see animals. We experienced all of that on this trip. My brother Josiah and his wife Amy were […]

  • Medicine Grizzly Lake (July 8th, 2018)

    Medicine Grizzly Lake (July 8th, 2018)

    If you follow Hike 734 you are probably aware that Jake is currently hiking and exploring Olympic National Park in Washington.  Although I’d love to join him on this adventure, my full-time job as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer and some lingering limitations from the long recovery process of a fractured foot is keeping me close […]

  • Logan Pass Opening 2018

    Logan Pass Opening 2018

    The wait is over! The Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is now officially open to vehicles all the way to Logan Pass for 2018! We were there when they opened the gates and were the first through on the west side which was super special for us and really dang exciting! Every year in […]

  • Apikuni Falls with Red Rock Falls 2018

    Apikuni Falls with Red Rock Falls 2018

    It’s been a while since we made it into Glacier National Park, but we made it happen this weekend. The trick is always to figure out where to go. Spring really restricts where you can go due to snowpack (especially this year!). This slimmed our pool of options, so we decided to hit up Apikuni […]

  • Schwabacher’s Landing

    Schwabacher’s Landing

    A series of easily accessed beaver ponds along the Snake River is sublimely backdropped by at Schwabacher’s Landing in Grand Teton National Park. It’s also a perfect place to spy moose! We pulled into the parking lot of Schwabacher’s Landing surrounded by a sea of sagebrush. This dry terrain contrasts with the collection of wetlands […]

  • Marion Lake and Granite Canyon

    Marion Lake and Granite Canyon

    A great way to explore the alpine areas of Grand Teton National Park is to take the tram ride up from Jackson Hole Resort in Teton Village to the top of Rendezvous Mountain. From there, traverse across the sublime landscape to Marion Lake, then back down through Granite Canyon and loop back to the village. […]
