My Locale Colorado
About Me Grew up in Atlanta and took my fist backpacking trip from Deep Creek to Newfound Gap when I was 14. Over the years I sectioned hiked the AT, canoed every river and swamp I could find in the SE, and then went to Yellowstone for a month of backpacking. I got a job and stayed for 5 years. Schlepped my 60+ pound pack all over the west. Got old and weak and quit. Started car camping with my kids and one day my 8 year old asked if we could do some "real camping". Started researching gear and joined the lightweight revolution. Hallelujah!

Re: Going to Glacier, need camp spots along the way.
Spring Hollow Campground just past Logan. It's easy in and out off Hwy 89. Another is Dewitt Campground a little further down the road.
