Who wants to go to Glacier?

That’s right, from the Doper tat brought you Who wants to go to St Thomas?: A hiking trip in Glacier National Park.

I thought the trip was off this year, but we’ve got confirmation for our backcountry permit to hike the North Circle loop in Glacier National Park and there are 2 openings left.

It’s a little over 50 miles in 6 days with a lot of up and down so you will need to be fit if you want to go (the first day is 10 miles w/ 2500 ft elevation gain and 2500 ft elevation loss).

The reservation is for August 7th - 16th. I know that’s more than 6 days, this allows for travel and picking up permits… Let me know if you want to go.

You’ll have to provide your own gear (tent, backback, boots, socks, food, etc.)

First come, first serve.

While I can’t go, I want to encourage some lucky doper to do it.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be in Glacier twice in my life. The defining moment was camping there the first week in Sept.

While walking to the bathroom about 10:30 at night, I looked up at the sky and saw more stars than I have ever seen in any location in my life. Not hyperbole.

And, when I noticed one of the stars moving slowly across the sky, I at first thought it a plane. Then I realized it was a satellite. Seen and tracked with my naked eye. Unreal.
