Years ago, Alan and Donna enjoyed their time hiking to Bullhead Lake with the Road Scholar Glacier National Park program, If you’re thinking about taking up hiking, going on a tour group with a local guide is a great way to start!

Can you believe that September is almost over? As soon as this weekend’s Montana snowstorm subsides, Alan and I will be driving back to the Bitterroot Valley from the Oregon Coast. The storm looks to be a doozy with blizzard conditions on the east side of Glacier National Park. If you’re visiting the area, be careful!
