Photo @ladzinski / Smoke from wildfires fills the steep valleys of #GlacierNationalPark Montana. The park is currently dealing with a handful of fires, devastating the landscape, historic lodges and threatening to make its way to the old growth red cedar forest. Over 47,000 wild fires have been reported in 2017, burning more than 8 million acres of land. It's been a record breaking year. A wet winter and spring sprouted early growth followed by a long and hot dry season, transforming that early growth into a highly flammable hazard. California and Oregon had record setting heat and drought. Meanwhile Houston, Miami and the Caribbean are experiencing a wave of hurricanes. Natural disasters continue to reek havoc in an ever changing environment. #climateChange

    The recent rain and snow sure have helped out here in Montana. Our #nps neighbor to the north, Glacier, has had a rough fire season.
