The pre-trip meeting...

for next week's field class to Glacier National Park occurs this evening, when my co-instructors and I meet with 19 students enrolled in the course.  We will likely have to significantly alter our field itinerary from what was originally planned due to the heavy snowpack in the park this year, and Going-to-the-Sun Road isn't even open for the season yet.  I also anticipate that many of the high altitude trails we had planned to hike will still be closed due to snow hazards at the time of our excursion.

Here's the status of the plowing, and a bunch of images provided by the Park Service.

UPDATE:  Going-to-the-Sun Road opened today, 13 July.
