Glacier 10 Insider Tips




Logan Pass

Feels good to be back home

After a couple months of hiking in Yellowstone National Park, I’m finally back home. While Yellowstone is amazing, I still need my Glacier National Park fix. It’s also fall around here and the colors are changing quite dramatically and both Kristen and I wanted to see Glacier in her new clothes. Another development has been […]

Riverside Geyser

Back to Yellowstone

I’m about ready to head south again. As smoke from innumerable fires both inside and out of Glacier fill the skies, I’m thankful that I’m spending September in Yellowstone National Park. My blogging has slowed as I’ve doubled down on my hiking, but that will bring hiking blogs all throughout the offseason. Yellowstone is a […]

Canyon Overlook Trail

Canyon Overlook Trail

The walk up the Canyon Overlook Trail in Zion National Park is short sweet and to the point… or overlook. The half mile trail climbs up some stairs cut into the sandstone, then traverses under  rock and over open sandstone to an incredible vista of Zion Canyon. Kristen and I drove from Springdale through the […]

Morning Eagle Falls

Piegan Pass 2015

While the hike up to Piegan Pass and back is a great trip in Glacier National Park, through hiking this exceptional day trip down to Many Glacier takes it to the next level. Dropping down into Many Glacier has you passing terraced, alpine landscapes, beautiful waterfalls and a series of emerald green lakes in the […]

Garden Wall Trifecta

Garden Wall Trifecta

Climbing on top of the Garden Wall in Glacier National Park is one of my favorite places and the three peak day including Bishops Cap, Mt. Pollock, and Piegan Mountain is a spectacular route. While I had already climbed this route a couple of times, including last year for the blog titled “Garden Wall Trifecta”, my wife and […]

Triple Divide Pass

Triple Divide Pass 2015

Triple Divide Pass in Glacier National Park has been on my wife’s radar for some time now and, after the weather broke, we decided to take a Sunday and head on up there. Although the day started out cloudy, it made for cool hiking until we got up to the pass. The wind and cooler […]

Kristen in the Subway

The Subway

The Subway in Zion National Park is one of my favorite day hikes that you can do as an out and back hike or a through canyoneering trip, but both need a permit. The out and back hike is called the Bottom Up Route and is a non-technical route that brings you to a slot canyon […]

Swiftcurrent Lookout

Swiftcurrent Lookout Early 2015

I’ve been having a lot of emails asking about current conditions in Glacier National Park. I had a free day to sneak up into Glacier. I decided to get into some high country and hiked to Swiftcurrent Lookout. The day started out as a perfect bluebird day. I drove up to the Loop, parked and […]

The Grotto Trail

The Grotto Trail

The Grotto Trail in Zion National Park is a short half mile trail in the main Zion Canyon that connects the Grotto with the Zion Lodge. This level trail is a nice trail, but not remarkable in and of itself. It has nice views of the surrounding canyon walls interspersed with shade. It’s biggest value is […]

Logan Pass Opening 2015

Logan Pass Opening 2015

The arrival of the opening of Going-to-the-Sun Road all the way to Logan Pass in Glacier National Park is always exciting. At present, it has only opened up from the west side, but the east side should follow sometime after the 19th of June this year. The snowpack is much lower than it was last […]
