Piegan Pass, seen here in a photo from around 1932, is one of two trails that connects the St. Mary and Many Glacier regions (the other is Swiftcurrent Pass). It’s about 13 miles from the trailhead at Siyeh Bend on the west side to Many Glacier Hotel on the east.

In 1926, the Glacier Park Hotel Company, a subsidiary of the Great Northern Railway, installed locomotive bells on Piegan, Siyeh,...

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday post features Cracker Lake, located in a glacier-carved cirque about 6 miles from the Many Glacier Hotel. You can’t tell from this 1911 photo, but Cracker Lake’s most defining feature is its brilliant turquoise waters.

The color is due to glacier meltwater containing very fine particles of sediment--the byproduct of rocks grinding against each other underneath a...

A box of limestone arrived in Glacier this week after a 14 year vacation in Florida!

Visitors hiking near Logan Pass liked the look of these stones and so they kept them. But of course, in a national park even the rocks are protected and it's against the law to keep them. Realizing their mistake years later these folks mailed the rocks back to us to return to Logan Pass this summer.

We all...

Thanks to all who participated in our first ever Mushroom BioBlitz! With over 60 participants searching the ground, logs, and trees, we collected 140 different species! In fact, one species we found, the "hedgehog scaleycap" fungus, has never been recorded in Montana before. The newly identified mushroom species add much to our knowledge of the park's fungal diversity and allow us to monitor...

Last week we talked about Sperry Chalet for #ThrowbackThursday, so this week it seems appropriate to talk about its sister chalet, Granite Park.

In 1914, Granite Park was the last of the chalets to be constructed by the Great Northern Railway. It soon became a popular destination for hikers and riders traveling over Swiftcurrent Pass from the Many Glacier Valley. Once the Highline Trail...

One of the quieter views in Glacier is looking up Lower McDonald Creek from the Quarter Circle Bridge. A side treat right now is the handful of white lady slipper orchids, just off the west end of the bridge. They should be in bloom for another few days. (bh)

Bowman Lake was spectacular this morning. The wet spring has the forests and meadows of the North Fork green and lush. Another result of the wet spring is the clouds of mosquitos out in full force right now. Go prepared with bug repellent. (bh)
