Glacier National Park

September 29, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Glacier National Park has been on my "bucket list" for awhile, so this September I finally made it there. It reminds me very much of the Canadian Rockies in the Banff/Jasper area of Alberta that Ellen and I went to a couple of years ago. Massive mountains that defy description are all around, along with wildlife that is hard to find elsewhere. I had hoped to get close looks at Mountain Goat at Logan Pass, but it was not to be. I DID get to see Grizzly Bear just off the trail to Iceberg Lake. He was eating berries, and was aware of the presence of hikers nearby but not at all interested in us. I had my bear spray at the ready but with no need, he moved off after a few minutes and allowed us all to pass. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of him; my camera was stowed in my backpack and I thought it unwise to take my attention off the bear to get the camera out. I could imagine the rangers saying "And then he stopped to get his camera out, with the bear just 20 yards away! What an idiot."
