Glacier spring hiking

As Glacier National Park celebrates its 100th year in 2010, publicity is likely to increase visitation. However, there’s always plenty of elbow room in the park during spring, before the high-country trails are free of snow. The lodges, gift shops and even the restrooms with running water were still being opened in the third week of May last year when Rich Landers, The Spokesman-Review’s outdoors writer, ventured out for a few days of hiking and camping. But the scenery and the wildlife were in peak condition.
