News and Adventure from Glacier National Park

The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting a brown bag luncheon presentation by Chris Peterson, photographer and writer, on Wednesday, October 5th from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the park’s Community Building in West Glacier. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Peterson’s book, “Through Glacier Park 1915–2015,” shares his experience recreating Mary Roberts Rinehart’s 300-mile journey through Glacier in 1915. Rinehart wrote about her expedition, which started and ended at the East Glacier train station, in her travelogue, “Through Glacier Park 1915.” Using Rinehart’s book as a guide, Peterson pieced together the route he thought she took. Through snowstorms, hurricane-force winds, blazing heat, bear encounters and the thick smoke of wildfires, Peterson walked roughly 240 miles, half of it with his autistic son, HJ.

Chris Peterson is the editor and photographer of the Hungry Horse News. He grew up near Rochester, New York, moving out West in 1998 to take the job as the staff photographer of the newspaper.
