I traveled through Glacier on a train when I graduated from high school. Scenery was breathtaking.

In spots...not in the back country. It is possible to live around the outside of the park. To live inside the park, you would have to go way off the grid.

One thing(among many) I like about the NOVA/DC Region, is while the city can be fun, it is GREAT to get about 40min west, and get out to the start of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We frequent skyline drive, and I just enjoy the Rolling hills, and wide open spaces. Also, while it's a short seasons, the VA wines aren't too bad, and there are a multitude of vineyards.

There was a sad, and depressing part in the Ken Burns National Park series about Glacier Natl. Park, saying that there will be NO more glacier in roughly 20-30 year, and all will be gone. The early pics, tin types I believe, compared to even pics in the 60/70 was a huge difference, but the pics f the glacier from the 80'3-today, were stunning. SO much loss, it was sad.

That's a beautiful part of the country that I haven't spent much time in, but would like to at some point.

Thanks a bunch!

I was skeptical at first, I am a beach bum/island boy by Birth, and at heart, but i have really come to enjoy the natural beauty of the Appalachians, and it's foothills. One days when I was up to it, it was grab camera gear, hop in car, pick a direction and just go. A LOT to see around here!
