Just caught this view:



The view from Apgar Mountain provides an opportunity to share views of the North Fork area
of the park. Once a draw for homesteaders, historic old cabins dot the landscape north of the
Polebridge Ranger Station. In the 1980s wolves migrated back into this area from Canada,
reestablishing packs that had not lived in the park for over 50 years. More recently fires have
occurred frequently and in 2003 the large Robert Fire left its mark on the view before you.
Notice the spotty nature of the fire with burned and unburned forest mixed together. This
diversity of habitat provides ideal conditions for a number of species and is one of the
trademark qualities of the North Fork section of Glacier National Park.

Enjoy

2. I've only been there once

when I was in college. I swore I would go back and hike as many trails as I could and go to the lodge in the back country.

Sadly, I am now 59 and have never been back.

3. I was born in Missoula, went to school in Ronan...Montana is in my soul

A river runs through it speaks to me and brings my memories of the Flathead, kalispel area in the late 1950's Your photograph is amazing! It brings back fond memories just like the Maclean novel...."Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it..."
