Bowman Lake
If you love water sports on crystal clear water, Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park is the place for you. But be aware, it is a prime habitat to Osprey and Eagles so the lake above the upper campground is frequently closed while these beautiful, protected birds are nesting.
Enjoy crystal clear Lake Bowman nestled among the mountain peaks of Square Peak, Rainbow Peak, and Mount Carter. For a day of quiet fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, or picnicking on her shores, you can’t beat the glorious sights and sounds of this Glacier National Park wonderland. Make reservations to enjoy one of the campgrounds on the lake to observe the beauty of the wild, and witness Osprey and Eagles soar over the lake in search of fish for their dinner.

East Side of Glacier National Park In the Fall
The park closed early on us this year, due to road construction. This did not stop us in finding the splendor of fall colors.
Taking a trip along the eastern edge and visiting the many stops there. Chief Mtn to the north and East Glacier to the south.
All with magnificent scene of their own.

The Elusive Elk Video
One of the wonders of North American wildlife can be experienced during the dawn of an autumn day in elk country. As clouds lighten from gray to pink and mountains begin to glow, the bugling of a bull elk resonates across a valley. People who witness such scenes seldom forget the experience.

Cut Bank Creek Slideshow
I had heard, from a traveling buddy of mine, that Cut Bank Pass Trail,
in Glacier National Park was a sight no one should miss.





Glacier National Park is located in the northwest corner of Montana, just north of Columbia Falls. The park encompasses more than one million acres and is home to grizzly bear, moose, elk, along with 63 varieties of wild mammals. While most of the roads in Glacier National Park are closed off during the winter, this provides miles and miles of tracks for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Visitors are seldom around in the dead of winter, so the muffled hush of the snow covered woods is especially enticing and serene.

A ski or snowshoe trip along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is one of the most scenic roads in North America, is a great option, according to park rangers. The road is closed to cars from September or October until snowmelt, usually in June. Several short hiking trails branch off from the road, which would be excellent for snowshoeing or skiing in the winter season.

 Once you have your gear, head up to Glacier National Park for an exciting adventure. Guided snowshoe trips are available, led by a park naturalist, and are highly recommended. If you are looking for an informative tour, snowshoeing is an easy way to explore the winter wonderland of this unique park. Snowshoeing will provide even the novice an effortless activity so your senses are more in tune with your environment and your guide's knowledge on the history, wildlife, geology, and biology of this precious ecosystem.
