I’ve been incredibly fortunate to live just a short distance from Glacier. I cherish this place that has been 1.5 billion years in the making. It would be sure to mesmerize if the mountains could talk and share all the stories about geology, glaciers, fire, humans, and other life.

It’s both exhilarating and rejuvenating, being far from the trailhead immersed in the sights, sounds and smells that Glacier’s wilderness offers. It’s addicting. 

To date, I’ve hiked over 500 miles of trails in the park. It is challenging for me to put into words what I’ve seen and do it justice. So, I resurrected an old hobby to add another dimension through photography.

Experience Glacier National Park is a way of sharing my experiences. I hope you find it helpful.

It seems the more we know about something, the more we care about it. What we care about, we protect. I hope that Experience Glacier National Park (and now my book, Going-to-the-Sun Road: A Traveler’s Guide) will help encourage responsible stewardship for our park.
