“There is no voice in all of the world so insistent to me as the wordless call of these mountains. I shall go back. Those who go once always hope to go back. The lure of the great free spaces is in their blood.”
As summer in Glacier Country comes to a close and tourist season in the park is winding down, the park service tells us that Glacier National Park’s 2010 Centennial may have been the best tourist season ever.
I can only say that the traffic was worse than usual, albeit a minor inconvenience simply because I am not used to the Sun Road having so many cars. We saw a lot more kids in Glacier this summer and that was great. I love to see families enjoying the outdoors and besides, it makes my girls feel like they’re not the only people at the park under middle age.
Our hike to Hidden Lake a couple of weeks ago is best described as one with abundant wildlife in a vibrant landscape. Shades of summer caught our attention …
Marmots whistled…as fresh snow on the mountains foretold of winter.
mountain goats ignored us,
while bighorn sheep kept a sharp eye on us…
and mule deer entertained us in the parking lot.
At the end of the day, the sunset captivated us.
