Glacier NP

Glacier NP in 1997 (Jun) and 1991 (Sept) - These and all shots before 1999 were likely shot with film on my Nikkormat or Ricoh 35mm and scanned later.

Come and experience Glacier's pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude. Relive the days of old through historic chalets, lodges, transportation, and stories of Native Americans.

Remnants of winter

Still a little snow left at Logan Pass on June 27th, 1997

Located at 6,646 feet above sea level is Logan Pass along the Continental Divide, which is at the summit of Going-to-the-Sun Road. This is the highest point at which you can drive your vehicle, but trails such as Hidden Lake can take you much higher. A visitor center is open only during the summer season. The pass is closed during the winter due to the impracticality of keeping the Going-to-the-Sun Road clear of snow and avalanches. East of the pass is the "Big Drift", which often has snow 100 feet deep.
