Spring time in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is coming alive. I can still see twilight over the mountains at 10PM!  Yeah . . .  By the end of the week I expect to see some balsam blooming.  Already the lower ground flowers carpeting the lithosols are blooming!

People are beginning to show up, some tourists, but mostly workers. This past weekend things really started buzzing around East Glacier Park, but deeper into the park, you'd think no one knew about the place, it's deserted, well, almost . . .

I love this time of year. By our standards it's spring, by most other's it's still winter, but spring in Glacier National Park is all about change and life!  New life springs up around every corner. Plants begin to reach for the sky, animals feed more comfortably on green food. Moose and elk are growing new antlers and grizzly bear cubs sharpen their skills! It's a all about life! Life happens to us, not for us!  Go live it!

For those that care, I mean really care about this place, consider calling your congressman and tell them to vote no on HB 1505!
