Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park meant thousands of different things to those fortunate enough to visit July 13 to 15, 2012, the dates of a Tribune project encouraging others to capture scenes in the 102-year-old park.

An estimated 57,000 people entered Glacier's gates and shared 1,013,594 acres from Friday to Saturday.

Photos from that weekend - taken by Tribune readers and staffers - appear on a timeline and are organized on a park map at greatfallstribune.com.

"How are you going to find a favorite part? There are so many good parts. We've thought everything we've seen was the best until we do the next hike"

Magdalena"I am from a small Argentinain town and it is surrounded by mountins, but not like this. The park is amazing. All of it. We arrived early this morning and saw a mama bear and three little kids. She crossed the trail and into the mountains."
