This past Sunday (May 3), a small fire damaged the Many Glacier Chalet, adjacent to the Many Glacier Hotel, where I worked during the summer of 2007. Luckily only one room was damaged and the fire did not spread to the hotel, which miraculously survived a forest fire in 1936 thanks to employees' heroic efforts to keep the roof wet with hoses as burning embers swirled through the air. Check out the history of the hotel as well as the story of the fire of '36 at the Glacier Park Foundation website. Check out photos of my summer in Glacier here and here.

Below is a promotional video of Many Glacier Hotel and the surrounding area. I admit it's a little cheesy, but check it out if you're curious about the place I probably bore you all talking about.
