Glacier National Park Celebrates 100 Years

Glacier National Park"2010 marks the 100th anniversary of one of America’s most valuable national treasures: Glacier National Park. Located in the northwest corner of Montana along the spine of the Rocky Mountains, Glacier National Park, the park’s primary visitor season runs May through October.

With various film festivals, art projects, legacy projects and other special events occurring throughout the year, it’s a great time to visit the Glacier National Park.

To see some current images of the park, check out their webcams.

Below is just some of the information available at http://www.glaciercentennial.org/ about the park and the anniversary celebrations."

Today:

A lovely surprise, it was even cooler this morning, and all three cats spent some time on the screen porch.  In fact our low was 63.5 deg. F.  We haven't had 63 deg. since May.

Ray and I worked on getting the vertical corner edges of the cargo/stealth trailer ready for re-painting.  Some silly sod had gooped silicone on the trim.  An RV no-no.  That all has to be scraped off, before it can be painted.  I basically got the floor plan measured for the inside, and marked the floor.

The sun was shining, but there was a breeze so it wasn't too hot. It was 90 deg. while we were working.   Maybe we are in the beginnings of Fall, but that would be early for this area.  Usually August and September are really hot and humid.   I hope that isn't an omen for another hard winter.

My son, Kevin, came by for a little while, so that was another lovely surprise today.

Enjoyed the Glacier post. We were up there last year. Spent 6 weeks in Kalispell in and out of the hospital with kidney stones. Be careful working out in that heat, cooler weather is coming before too long. Feel free to pass the defrosting tip along to as many as you want. That's what is nice about blogging.
