If we ever cross paths I am buying-
Post some pics; that'll be payment enough.
Btw, went to Many Glacier yesterday to visit a friend camping/hiking there for a week. Got to the entrance about 2:00 PM and they were turning people away because there was no parking available (we'd heard this was happening); when we got to the booth I told the ranger we were visiting someone in the campground (luckily I remembered her site #) and they let us in. Driving to the campground saw that there were a number of open parking spaces at the Grinnell trailhead lot and at Swiftcurrent so there seems to be a breakdown in communication somewhere. When we headed out, we stopped at the ranger station and asked what the deal was - they explained crowds were so bad they had to implement the new procedures from 10-4 every day. Kinda sucks since folks flying blind will be driving a long way (the last 10 miles down a real POS road) only to have to turn around or wait until things lighten up; no mention of this on the Park site, either. We brought this to their attention and got shrugged shoulders, and "sorry; we're just doing what we're told". Hopefully, things will improve towards the end of August, but it seems this is becoming the new normal during peak season.
These things are gone forever
Over a long time ago, oh yeah

Your dog looks like a goat.

Hero, I cannot support or deny your claim. Hell I did not think you were even real. But now I think you might be a hot spotter!!
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

No wonder goat sightings are common, they've got fuckin' shock collars on.

You can't go wrong anywhere in Glacier. The Road to the Sun is a great bike ride. Any of the streams yield fish, not always big, but they hit big flies like crazy and is a lot of fun if you aren't hooked on only catching big fish. The water is cold and beautiful. Just go. You will love it.
If you are lucky enough to live in the mountains by a river, you are lucky enough.
