    A little teaser of what might be coming soon ?!?! Holy Smokey, now that is a teaser! Maybe. Looks like that raft carries more stuff than the pontoon boat. :moses:

    Hmm...whiskey and a microphone. I don't see this going horribly wrong in any way, shape, or form. :uhhuh:

    A few mug shots from the last 2 months. I've got some reports to write up:

    After 9 years, I finally made it out to Gyrfalcon Lake, in Glacier National Park.

    Another shot of me at Gyrfalcon Lake, with my buddy Pat, who masterminded our traverse of Thunderbird Mountain to get here.

    @Keith R. and myself drying out after the first of several snowstorms, overlooking the Thorofare Valley, Yellowstone National Park.

    I sort of feel guilty posting all of this, but if some of you guys are going to count bag nights, I would prefer to just post pictures, and hopefully encourage a few people looking at them to get out here.

    @Joey I just have to say WOW at everything you have been posting. The Glacier nerd in me is really shining and with those other places, I am super impressed. Also, Very nice you finally got to Gyrfalcon Lake, seems like a wonderful place to get to that happens to be in a wonderful park. Will hopefully try to get to it sometime before I'm 26 ish (arbitrary age)

    P.S. Where the heck is Olson Lake!? never have I heard of anything Olson in GNP lol:)

    Look for Olson Creek. The lakes directly east of the Guardhouse.

    DSC_0245.JPG You can see part of it in this picture, the top lake.

    I was going to write up the trip report this week, but need to wait until I get back to my other computer down in Utah. It's kind of a good one. Most incredible trip i've ever done. I'm going to send you a link with more pictures.

    Do as you please, I'm always pumped to read your reports and see the photos and videos. And I'm probably not alone in saying it would be awesome to see how many bag nights you get in a year. Haha.

    Thanks Jackson. I didn't mean it as a negative towards the bag night thing. I just don't always feel comfortable posting stuff, since it can be a lot, and some people take it as a "look at me" type thing, which is not what i'm going for.

    I see that from people on Facebook a lot. They never post anything and seem annoyed by people that do post things because they actually go and do things. You know, the "he's always on vacation" people. Fortunately, this is Backcountry Post. The only thing discouraged is discouraging people from posting. Anyone looking at BCP is here to see posts of people showing what they're up to in the outdoors.

    Oh I didn't take it negatively! I figured it was about not wanting to toot your own horn, and I admire that.

    Thanks for the inspiration with all these recent posts!

    Hi all,

    My name is Corey and I am a new member to backcountrypost, from Missoula, MT. What I love about where I live is acccess to multiple wildernesses in a close proximity: Selway-Bitterroot, Rattlesnake, Mission mountains, and more. I am also just a few hour drive from Glacier, which I have been attempting to keep a once a year trip up there a tradition. I am hoping to compile some photos and info together to create some TR's for some of the backpacking and day trips in my area. On to a couple photos:

    My faithful trail partner (remi) and I atop Stuart Peak in the Rattlesnake Wilderness:

    Me along Avalanche Creek in Glacier

    And finally, checking out the SW horizon towards Idaho on the trail up to Nelson Lake, southern part of the Bitterroot mountain range.
