Particularly Interesting

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.

Re: Particularly Interesting

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

Thank You

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!

Re: Nothing...

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

Impressive work

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.
Impressive, again.

Marias Pass

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!

Re: Marias Pass

Corrected with a photo Little Dog Mountain from Marias Pass

Amazing, very well done

Incredible work. Well researched, well laid-out. I have nothing but kudos for this fantastic contribution.

PS: I'm a closet history geek. ;)

Re: Amazing, very well done

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.

firebrand pass?

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?

Re: firebrand pass?

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.
