Hiking Books about Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park has no shortage of Ground Squirrels. And when hiking on the Highline Trail, you'll see plenty of them. This is especially so at "Haystack Pass", the informal lunch stop that is more or less located between Logan Pass and Granite Park Chalet. At this pass, which is open and relatively flat, Ground Squirrels are everywhere. This probably isn't a surprise, since the squirrels can pick up a ton of dropped food from the passing hikers. This particular squirrel was nearly right on my shoe when I took this picture - so you can see how "tame" these squirrels are.
