Epic Drives: Glacier National Park's Going-To-The-Sun Road

Is it weird that we had never heard of the Going-To-The-Sun Road until just before we headed to Glacier? I mean, seriously… this is one of the most epic drives in the United States of America and we knew almost nothing of it previously. Either way, I’m glad that was the case, because I had no idea what to expect (Sorry if I’m ruining it for you.

Backpacking Adventures: Gunsight to Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park

Lessons in Zen at Logging Lake

It seems our first night in the Glacier backcountry proved mildly successful. I've emerged from the 10 mile hike with little to no soreness in my recovering knee and Meisha, although sore and tired, made it in and out just fine despite her own recovering hip injury. The next few days will dictate how much more backcountry will be experienced. At this point, Meisha isn't feeling particularly confident about moving to more strenuous trails and multi-day treks. Injuries suck!   Read more

Bearanoia and the Montana Mountains

We now carry bear spray with us. What a strange feeling. Three "mountain" kids traveling together and all of us are more-or-less completely inexperienced with bears. Yesterday, we stopped at a porting supply store for camping advice and I couldn't help but be thoroughly entertained as Jared had to ask the man at them store how bear spray worked. I felt pretty silly when Jared explained its proper use to and I wondered if I might have fumbled with it in a pinch had I not had said explanation. We're exploring new country indeed.   Read more
