Through Glacier Park 1915-2015


A Centennial Celebration of a Classic Journey.

By Chris Peterson.

In 1915, author Mary Roberts Rinehart penned the book, "Through Glacier Park in 1915.” It was a travelogue of a 300-mile journey through Glacier, starting and ending in East Glacier at the train station. Guided by Howard Eaton, she traveled by horseback through the park with a party of more than 40 people, including famed artist Charlie Russell.

In 2015, author and Hungry Horse News Editor Chris Peterson recreated the journey and her photographs. Between April and September, Chris hiked 240 miles, many of them with his son, while facing snowstorms, rain, hurricane-force winds, blazing heat, bear encounters and the thick smoke of wildfires.
