George Grant was the National Park Service official photographer at the time the Going-to-the-Sun Road was being constructed in the early 1930’s. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service in 1916, Ren and Helen Davis created this collection of Grant’s historic photos.
In 1915, author Mary Roberts Rinehart wrote “Through Glacier Park in 1915”. It was her story of a 300-mile journey through Glacier Park. For the 100th anniversary of that trip, Chris Peterson retraced that journey and wrote his third book “A Trip Through Glacier Park” which he will present for our first Look Listen and Learn program of the 2016 summer season.
Chris Peterson has been with the Hungry Horse News for the past 18 years, either as its photographer or editor or both. He lives in Columbia Falls and has hiked almost every trail in the Park and hundreds of miles in the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
