Skiing to Running Eagle Falls 2017

The common misconception with Glacier National Park is that when Going-to-the-Sun Road and other roads close, the park is closed. The great thing about this misconception is that the park is extremely quiet and we enjoyed that solitude with a cross-country ski to the lovely, mystical Running Eagle Falls in Two Medicine. The forecast looked […]

September Raptor Count

On a crisp morning, late in September, I rolled up to the humble building housing the fine folks that run the Citizen Science program in Glacier. We were heading on up to Swiftcurrent Pass for the annual raptor count during the fall raptor migration that starts in September and continues into November. As if I needed […]

Anniversary in Canada

When trying to figure out where to go and what to do for our anniversary, Kristen said, “Would you mind if I just planned something and surprised you?”. I love surprises and am not the greatest planner, so I jumped on it with the caveat that next year, I would do the planning. So last […]
