“Perfection in the fall”

Overall Rating

Absolutely one of our favorites.

McGinnis Creek: Boondocking Among the Scars of Glacier National Park's Summer of Fire

 Aside from some solemn moments spent looking out over the scarred forest, we spent most of our time at the McGinnis Creek area working, cooking, and cleaning.  Although these are not the most exciting...
