article and background on one of the nation's most beautiful places. Thanks.
First class article- Thanks for the great effort.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.
...articles we have on SP. A fine and highly commendable piece of work.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Appreciate the history as well as the references to current hikes and access. Definitely well done!
Thanks ss. It was an enjoyable article to write.
Your article is well-researched and shed an interesting historical and sociological light on this beautiful place. I envision this article will grow as you learn more about other passes in the park.
there is actually a lot more I could write but had to be careful not to add too much information. A lot of the pass have information regarding whiteman's usage of the passes and I specifically focused on the Native American aspect. Perhaps another article will be in process with more information about that. great idea Sam. I am please that you enjoyed it. Blake
I had no idea on the extent of history we were walking through! Thank you for sharing. You have made my trip that much more memorable. Also I saw your great article on Jewel Basin. Hope to day hike or snowshoe the Basin area after Thanksgiving.
ever made me want to go to Glacier as much as this article. The pictures (particularly Maria Pass) are beautiful. To spend a summer wandering those passes would be amazing. Thanks for the inspiration!
Perhaps Dr. Lyman B. Sperry said it best. He wrote:
"Finding that a single day in this remarkable place could give but a taste of its delights, some of our party determined to visit again as soon as practicable.”
Thanks for your kind comments. Blake
and impressive place. And a very interesting history (here in Europe, we know really nothing about american natives). Thanks for your effort and for sharing.
Thanks Luiso. I am working on Part II now so stay tuned for more information.
Just a quick correction. The picture titled Marias pass is actually nowhere near Marias pass but near logan pass looking down the macdonald valley. I wish the terrain near Marias pass looked like that!
Corrected with a photo Little Dog Mountain from Marias Pass
Incredible work. Well researched, well laid-out. I have nothing but kudos for this fantastic contribution.
PS: I'm a closet history geek. ;)
Thanks Sarah. I appreciate your comments. I have been a history buff for a long time. I actually even have a Bachelor's Degree in History, so I too am guilty as charged.
any information on firebrand pass? i've had the pleasure of hiking there twice, and it truly is a hidden gem! would love to know more about the area. must be associated with "the backbone of the world" in some way?
I was thinking about adding it...but I am not sure where to put it. not a lot of information can be found. I have been in there twice this year. It is a great area.
