Glacier National Park is becoming inaccessible due to the main road being closed at Logan Pass. Today, Sheila and I drove around the park to Many Glaciers. On our way, we got a real good idea of the fire and the efforts to get it under control. We got to the town of St. Mary. This town for the most part is now an area inhabited by fire fighters.

By the time we got there, we would have had to turn around. So we decided ...
