Loved this view leaving Glacier National Park one evening around 9pm. My camera batteries were totally out at this point so had to use my phone. My phone came through for me with a […]

Love how the one rock stands out from the rest. (Best view […]

Glacier Lilies

In early summer you will find Bear grass( Xerophyllum tenax) in the mountain areas. Bear grass is not only eaten by mountain goats, but elk, bighorn sheep and deer love it also. Supposedly, Grizzly bears do not really like it as much as other animals. Grizzly bears use Bear grass as a nesting material for their […]

Lake McDonald Lodge is one of the finest examples of a Swiss Chalet hotel remaining in the United States. One of my favorite things at the lodge are the hickory-type […]
