I’ve been incredibly fortunate to live just a short distance from Glacier National Park. I cherish this amazing place that has been 1.5 billion years in the making.  If the park’s mountains could share all their stories about the changes they witnessed, it would be sure to mesmerize.

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 in the park. It’s impossible for me to put into words all that I’ve seen and experienced and do it justice. To help, I resurrected an old hobby to add another dimension through photography.

Experience Glacier National Park is a way of sharing what I’ve learned about the Crown of the Continent. 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 national park.
