Bear Aware, Spring in Glacier Park, Glacier Park Photo Gifts Launched!

Bear Aware
How about a few bear refreshers!  I've seen several grizzly and black bears around recently and would like to reminded everyone to be bear aware!

Here's a great video on being bear aware: http://bit.ly/iCaNvg

Spring in Glacier Park
It is spring in Glacier National Park, finally!  I've been told that some of the park camp grounds on the east side wont open till June 10th, and as of today, May 18 (Mt Saint Helen's erupted on this day in 1980), the roads on the east side of the park are only slightly open . . .  what that means is they are not open very far, if you want more information on the park roads, Google "glacier park roads."

The Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla vulgaris) or the crocus flower is in full bloom.  In fact this bloom is as good as I've ever seen it.  For those not familiar with that flower, here's an example of one I shot just two days ago. In the coming weeks expect the following: balsam, glacier lily, yellow bells, camas, and many more!

The snow is melting rapidly around east glacier park.  Luna's, a local restaurant is open, Serrano's opened a couple of weeks ago, the Grill and Ramsey's (not there are not kitchen nightmares there) of course remain open for business, and i'm seeing lots of activity in town!  Glacier Impressions Gallery plans to be open soon too although I'm going to miss the opening few days.

I hope if you're planning a trip out to Glacier National Park, you'll find time to stop in and say hi to us at the Glacier Impressions Gallery on hwy 49 in east glacier park (on the road though town if you're going up to Two Medicine Lake, or driving over the scenic Looking Glass Road on your way to Saint Mary's), - Looking Glass is not yet open, too mush snow still; I'll update this blog when it opens!

Glacier Park Photo Gifts
I've also just launched a new online gallery with a few Glacier Park images that can be purchased online in the form of prints on paper, mugs, key chains, puzzles and cards, if you're interested, please take a look!  Once there, just click the "add to cart" button and it will give you a list of items you can buy.
