Grass and some flowers are growing real good after the fire, anything wood based will take time.











Comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Your images are great as usual.

They remind me very much of Glacier, of course. Glacier was largely developed by a railroad magnate, a man named Hill, whose railroad {known as the Great Northern RR} went right past the park, in order to build up passenger traffic on the route. Do you know anything about the history of Waterton Lakes NP?

Your photos are always a treat, Heinrich - and this group is no exception. The first one makes me long to drive down that road towards the mountains. Numbers 4 and 5 demonstrate that renewal has begun, which makes one fell hopeful.

They are very nice shots. I grew up in MT but never made it up there. I spent some time in Glacier NP though.

Well according to that history, the Hill family was involved in the development of both parks. A person would arrive at one of the two train stations, be given a ride to Glacier NP, then spend time at several different hotels on both sides of the border before being given a ride back to the train. This all started in 1910, a time of limited private transportation, so it was good for the visitors, good for the parks, and good for the Great Northern Railroad - a win - win - win. Even in 1985, when we visited Glacier NP, the area seemed to have a thriving public transportation network.
