NATIONAL PARKS – The late spring and heavy snowpack has been a downer for visitation to Glacier National Park.
The National Park Service reports 266,263 people entered the park in June, down 21 percent compared to June 2010.
Of course, the park attracted record crowds last year because of centennial celebration activities.
But Going-to-the-Sun Road over Logan Pass didn’t open until July 13 this year, the latest opening on record.
Deep snow in the higher elevations is still blocking popular trails.
