Park Chalet and the Highline Trail to
the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Shown below are various
pictures taken on a hike up (actually, down) the Loop Trail in August of
As most people know, much of Glacier was burned over during the terrible
fire season of 2003. The area the Loop Trail runs through was extensively
burned over by the Trapper Creek Fire. As such, what use to be a very
thickly forested area is now a stand of dead trees. Yet, despite all
the dead trees, due to the quick growth of the ground cover and countless
flowers, the Loop Trail is a relatively scenic hike...assuming you can
look past the burnt pine trees.
