Y some it is called the ' Switzerland
of America." True, it lias the ma
jestic, snow-topped mountains crowd
ed closely together, the glittering
ice fields of glaciers, the sparkling
little lakes lying cupped between the
heights, and the magnificent forests
of pine and fir. Hut not, as in
Switzerland, are there towns and
hamlets and scattered cottages; the
visitor must gain the summits afoot or on
horseback, without the aid of "funicular" or cog
railway; over and through and about it there are
not the immense swarms of "trippers" that infest
the old world country; hordes of guides do not
dog your footsteps, and ravenous hotelkeepers
are not found at every turn.
Others have dubbed it "Uncle Sam's Newest
Playground," and so it is, but it will not be that
very long. So some writer with a vivid imagina
tion must find a new name for the Glacier Na
tional Park.
About 14,000 persons visited Glacier park last
summer, and in the coming season it is probable
fully twice as many will view its beauties and
wonders. Although as a national park it is only
three years old, its name is already familiar in
this country because of the
extensive advertising it has
received and of the enthusi
astic accounts of those who
have seen it; and it seems
destined to become one of
the most popular regions for
persons who like to spend
their holidays in a some
what unconventional way
and at moderate expense.
Occupying 1,400 square
miles near the northwest
corner of Montana, Glacier
park is right in the heart
of the" Rockies and in the
matter of mountain scenery
it yields to no place. Doz
ens of magnificent peaks
crowd the landscape, some
towering to heights of more than 10,000 feet. On
the upper slopes of many of them shine the gla
ciers that give the park its name, and from these
everlasting beds of snow and ice are born scores
of torrents that dash, down the mountain sides and
hurl themselves over tremendous cliffs. Scattered
all about among the mountains are deep lakes that,
lie like burnished mirrors in the calm of a sunny
day or are lashed into black rage when the storm
sweeps down on them from the heights.
Perilous passes, steep and rocky climbs slip-rt-

If one wishes to get away from hotel life en
tirely he can have camping trips in the wilderness,
and it is really wilderness, in which he can wander
for weeks without seeing a human habitation. Big
game is there in abundance bears, mountain
Bheep, mountain goats and various kinds of "var
mint" but of course it is strictly protected by
Uncle Sam. But fish are there, too, especially
trout, and the visitor is free to catch them if he
can. Adding their own touch of picturesqueness
are the Indians of the Blackfeet tribe, whose home
is in the reservation immediately east of the park.
The usual entrance to the park is at its south
east corner where, at Glacier Park station, is one
of the most remarkable and attractive hotels in
the country. The main buflding 'is constructed
largely of immense logs from Washington and
Oregon and the spacious lobby is flanked by these
natural pillars which tower three stories to the
roof. Enormous fireplaces, scores of pelts of wild
animals and the heads of buffalo and deer add to
the attractions; and more comfort and better food
cannot be obtained in metropolitan hotels. Tour
ists, guides and Indians mingle here, and for
mality is discarded.
I haven't the slightest intention of writing a
Buidebook to tho Glacier National Park, but I do
wish to tell of some of its wonders and beauties
that can be seen in a visit of a few days. So first
let's climb into this big touring car and go to
Lake St. Mary.. Our chauffeur Is a "breed," capa
ble, courteous and well educated, who knows the
country as you know your back yard. For some
20 miles our route lies through the Indian reser
vation and we skim along the boulevard road
across sweeps of prairie, up hills and along the
edges of precipices, now dipping down into lovely
valleys, now crossing rushing streams', with the
mountains ever growing more imposing and more
fascinating. Twisting up a long climb and swerv
ing to the west, we come to the continental water
ehed near Triple Divide mountain. Thence the
waters flow on one side to Hudson bay, on another
to the Pacific and on the third to the Mississippi
valley and the gulf. This is truly the roof of the
continent. Now for 16 miles the road runs
through the great pine forests and winds gradually
downward, on the slopes of the mountain, until
with a loud honking our motor car draws up be
side the charming log chalets of St. Mary, camp
that cling to the steep shores of the lake, whose
waters sparkle and ripple under the midday sun.
Dinner awaits in the' biggest chalet plain food,
well cooked and plentiful, served by attractive
waitresses. It is eaten with a relish and without
formalities, and then, after a few minutes in the
-recreation" chalet with its player piano and
dance floor, we all pil aboard a powerful gasoline
launch and head up the lake for Going-to the-Sun
On the right stretches the long ridge of Single
Shot mountain, and on the left rise Citadel, Al
most Dog (lovely name) and other fine peaks.
Put our eyes are fixed forward to where Going-tothe-Sun
mountain rears its magnificent snow
topped head. It Is one of the most picturesque
ountains in America, and hanging near its sum

lake, the view of this mountain, of Klackfeet gla
cier, of Citadel, Reynolds, and Fusillade mountains
and of the heights about Gunsight pass far beyond
Is most impressive.
While we linger here marveling at the "upside
down" waterfall, the vivid colors of the mountains
and the ice-green lake spread at our feet, the
sharp peak of Fusillade is veiled by clouds that
pour swiftly over and about the nearer heights,
and away up there a snowstorm is raging. For us
it is rain, however, and driven to shelter, we crowd
into the cabin of the launch and hustle back to St.
Mary camp.
From St. Mary camp the automobile road baa
just been extended some 20 miles to Many-Glacier
camp on Lake McDermott. This place, in itself
fine enough, is the headquarters from which we
make short "trips to some of the park'3 greatest
attractions Morning Eagle falls, Cataract creek,
Swift Current pass and, most wonderful of all, Ic;ei
berg lake. This little body of exquisitely blue wa
ter Is almost wholly surrounded by serrated,
splintered ridges that tower 3,000 feet above its
surface. On a kind of shelf lies what is left of the
ancient glacier that scooped out this basin ages
ago, and fromvits edges icebergs, large and small,
are continually breaking off to go floating lazily
about in the lake. Iceberg lake is the habitat of
the polar trout discovered by Hoke Smith, who
says they have fur instead of scales.
Now back to the Glacier Park hotel for mail and
a little rest, for we are seeing the park in a lazy,
leisurely fashion. And what next? Well, suppose
we give at least one day to Two Medicine lake, a
region that for sheer beauty can hold its own
with any in the park. The trip is made by stage
In about three hours, and on the way up the lovely
valley we tie up the horses and are led through
the forest to the Trick falls. Here 1n high water
times Two Medicine river plunges over the edge
of a mass of rocks down among huge boulders:
but in the dry season it drops into a hole above
and emerges more quietly through a cavern in the
rooky wall. The mountain that especially domi
nates Two Medicine lake Is Rising Wolf, and it Is
almost as handsome as Going-to-the-Sun. Here,
too, is another of those delightful chalet camP9
and what with the view, the food and the air, it is
hard to tear one's self away from it.
If there are any real fishermen in our party the
best thing they can do Is to go to St. Mary s camp
again, and from there by trail to Red Eagle ake.
three hours distant. This beautiful green lake,
only a mile long and half a mile wide, is from zoo
to 600 feet deep, and fairly swarms with cut
throat trout, while in the streams that flow into
and out of it the Dolly Varden trout is found in
great numbers. These ash are good fighters and
the angler who gets oae on his hook and under
takes to yank it from its ice-cold home has a task
that delights his sou. Since there is a stretch or
shallow water in front of the camp, the fisherman
often rides out on horseback to deeper water and
there, still astride hi steed, casts for the trout.
The first time you sit on a horse and try to land
ten-pound ut-throat you will forget there is
aaythiug else on earth except that little lake sur
rounded by a dosen magnificent mountains, that
horse and that trout.
Uelng still somewhat averse to strenuous exer
cise, we are now golna to board the train at Gla
cier Park station and ride luxuriously over the
continental divide, in itself a trip well worth tak-

Swiss chalet hoiqrod.irt:lircb aboard a stage coach
for the ride to La'V McDonald. For an hour we
travel a boulevard )cut through a dense forest of
pine, spruce and b;Usam, and then, where a group
of cottages are clustered on its shore, the lake
opens out before us. , This 11-mile stretch of water
is so beautiful, in setting and color, that no words
are adequate to describe it. Lake McDonald was
a popular resort long before the national park
was established, and there are several hotels and
camps about its northern end. To one of these,
the Glacier hotel,, we a.-e taken by launch to be
greeted cordially by its proprietor, J. E. Lewis,
who for years has been taking care of fishermen
and other folk who wanted to spend a week or a
summer In the open. So near that it seems but a
moment's walk fipm the shore, the mountains of
the park tower W the 6kies, casting their jagged
reflections in the still waters of ihe lake. A ten
mile ride through the forest that clothes their
lower slopes brings us to Avalanche lake. Pea
green In color, reflecting the spruee and pine and
hemlock that crowd to its very edge, it lies like
a precious gem in a deep basin that is a veritable
mountain garden'. At one end the rock wall rises
almost perpendicularly for 6,000 feet, and over its
edge ard down, its face dash four torrents dis
charged from Sperry glacier, two miles away.
Not very easy of access, but wonderfully impres
sive when you get to it after some five hours of
climbing, is Sparry glacier. Just a great field of
ice and snow, about three miles in extent and of
unknown depth, it lies glittering and sparkling
under the midsummer sun. Crevasses cross its
expanse here and there, and the tourist must be
exceedingly careful if he ventures out on Its sur
face. Indeed, the authorities do not permit this,
unless with guides and ropes, on any of the gla
ciers in the park. The wind Is always high up
there, and snow and rock slides are frequent.
The mountains and glaciers and lakes and
passes we have seen are only a few of the wonders
of this wonderful park only a few, indeed, of
that part that Is open to ordinary sight seers.
Almost half of the park, the northern part, is
known to few except forest rangers, guides, Indi
ans and some scientists. Doubtless before many
years the whole region will be opened up, and the
remarkably satisfactory system of camps estab
lished by the Great Northern Railway company
will be extended to the Canadian border. Within
the last year these accommodations have been en
larged greatly to meet the demands of the rapidly
increasing stream of visitors.
Qne more thing must be Bald for Glacier Na
tional Park: It is a pleasure ground for the peo
ple, not for the millionaire. No fine clothes, no
expensive luxuries there. All charges are regu
lated by the government, and it Is the ambition
of Louis Hill, chairman of the board of directors of
the Great Northern, to keep the necessary ex
penses of visitors down to the minimum. Glacier
park is his hobby and his pride, and he Is as
familiar with its trails and passes as are the
guides and the Indians. Of course, tourist travel
to the park helps his railway, and at some time in
the far future the company may begin to break
even on its lavish expenditure of money to make
things comfortable for those who go all the way
to Montana to see the Bwltserland of America 1
