The Road to Glacier National Park - Part 1
This is my first article in a new series that I will be writing in preparation for my two week trip to Glacier National Park. The national park service describes Glacier as: "Crown of the Continent - come and experience Glacier's pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude. Relive the days of old through historic chalets, lodges, transportation, and stories of Native Americans. Explore Glacier National Park and discover what awaits you."
We live in times where everything is over-stated and hyped by marketing professionals, so unfortunately one of the side effects is a numbing to truthful statements. The description provided by the national park service is truthful and at the same time, incapable of describing the awe of nature that is accessible at Glacier National Park. Glacier is a place that must be experienced and while we can view her beauty via photographs, words will always fall short, and Glacier is a place that must be experienced to fully understand the benefits and transformative experiences that are possible.
I will be sharing everything from my planning notes, to my physical training regiment that I will be doing to ensure that I am in shape for the experience. For the photographers in the audience I will include plenty of "photo gear talk" which includes both large format film and DSLR gear.
