8 viewsThis is a view from that part of trail that goes over snow from the previous picture. Needless to say, you have to watch your step or your going for a ride (or slide) down an avalanche chute.

7 viewsHere is Kara. She was our very nice and extremely knowledgeable ranger/guide. Mom and Dad, here is an idea for you. You can go be rangers in Glacier National Park for the summers. That is what Kara does when she is not teaching in Indiana for the rest of the year.
