Many Glacier; The Stories Behind the Names

July 20, 2018
7:00 pm   -   9:00 pm
Kintla Camp Room, Apgar Village, Glacier National Park

The Montana House is pleased to host a ‘Kintla Camp’ presentation by Blake Passmore, author and photographer of several books about Glacier National Park. His presentation will be at 7pm Friday, July 20 in the Kinta Camp event room at Montana House in Apgar Village.

Join Blake for an evening focused on the stories behind the names in Many Glacier. There is a lot of history in Many Glacier that many people are not aware of. For instance, where are McDermott Lake or Jealous Woman’s Lake in Many Glacier? Who was Parley Stark and what does he have to do with Many Glacier? What was Angel Wing called before its name was changed? Who was Natakhi Lake named for and how does she fit into the history of Many Glacier? Who named the Garden Wall?

Blake has previously published: What They Called It and What They Called It, Volume II which includes photos of many of Glacier’s places and tell their rich historical origins. Blake’s text and photography are also in his Climb Glacier National Park climbing guide series and Up on the Roof with fifty panoramic photos of Glacier with peak identification. All of these books, distributed through Montana Outdoor Guidebooks, are available for sale at Montana House.

Blake’s presentation will begin at 7pm with time for questions, a book signing, and reception to follow. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited, so reservations are needed. Please call 406-888-5393 or email: for additional information and to reserve your seats.
