Kintla Lake is a part of Glacier National Park which is seldom infested by tourists. On June 30, 2013, an EPIC group of Kossacks made the long trek from tourist-infested Apgar to Kintla Lake. Most survived (Kossacks, that is). Shown below are some of the photos from this EPIC trip.

On the Camas Road:

The Camas Road is inside Glacier National Park.

On the North Fork Road:

The Outside North Fork Road follows the North Fork River just outside of Glacier Park. It is often dusty and a bit rough.

The small village of Polebridge takes its name for the bridge made out of poles which used to cross the North Fork River into Glacier Park. The original bridge was destroyed in the 1988 Red Bench Forest Fire which almost destroyed the village and has been replaced by a modern structure.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
