Chain Lakes

Easy, quick and dirty hike with wolf in the Whitefish Mountains up Red Meadow Lakes… Prefect escape on a day like today….

Huntsberger Lake

Here are a couple shots of Huntsberger Lake in the Whale Creek Drainage. Looks like there is still a bunch of snow in the backcountry. Time to enjoy glissading!

Riding Going-to-the-sun Road

The plows are parked on top of a pile of snow in the switchback just before Logan Pass. Most of the debris has been cleared off the road way. We rode up from Lake McDonald Lodge, but riding down was the real treat…

Red Meadow Road

Came across this guy on my ride down red meadow road. I was curious how far you can get and I turned around a little past the 8 Mile marker where the snow started to cover the whole width of the road. One probably could get as far as the bridge or even further pushing through some snow… To be tried again!

North Fork Park Update

Glacier National Park swung two gates open yesterday morning; – One will get you full access to everything Bowman. – the other will get you as far south as Logging Creek along the Inside NF Road. The Bowman CG remains in primitive status ($10/night) until the water gets turned on Thursday ($15/night). The lake water is “up”. Expect 3+ miles of post-holing snow along the Quartz Loop. The last two…

Great bike ride with Mike Oppenheimer up towards Logan Pass. The plows were parked just below Triple Arches!

Going to the sun road

It’s just under 100 klicks from the Camas Bridge to Logan Creek round trip. That’s where the Hiker/ Biker closure was. The plows have made it about a mile plus past the loop. A good sunburn was the reward of this first day of May and my first daffodil flowered out! There were some good slides along the road, I’m excited to go further up now.
