2007 Glacier National Park Fires
The Montana fires also create some fantastic sunset photos as per the header photo shot from my driveway in Columbia Falls, MT!!
2007 visitation to Glacier National Park is up over 10% as of the end of July. Glacier remains a great place to visit during all the fires.
As of August 19, 2007 Glacier National Park has not been threatened with any fires. The Skyland Fire is getting very close to East Glacier The conditions are very dry and but we are experiencing the beautiful scenery and wildlife people are looking for.
I visited Logan pass July 28th and shot some great photos of Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep, marmots and ground squirrels as well as some beautiful wild flowers on my hike to Hidden Lake. Id was very warm, about 85 degrees F when I completed the 3 mile round trip at about 12:30 PM. I am sure it got much warmer later in the day.
The wildlife were very active when I started on the hike (about 10:30) but had all but disappeared on my way back. So if you are looking for wildlife in Glacier National Park, you might want to start early in the morning.
To get an up to the hour look at what is going on in Glacier National Park go to the Glacier National Park Web Cams page.
