Spring is an absolutely marvelous time in Glacier National Park and while most of the interior roads are not yet open for vehicle traffic, some of them are available for hiking and biking.
Most of us spend the majority of our “Glacier time” in the park during the summer and fall seasons. Since one of the main goals of this project is to share the other seasons of the park with you, we thought it would be terrific to capture some footage of those familiar vantage points during this spring season. The early spring weather has resulted in some easy hiking/biking access to roads to places like Two Medicine and St. Mary’s so Mike’s been thinking about how to get back in a ways on those roads.
While we love our Red camera it isn’t light and by the time you add the tripod and assortment of lenses it is downright heavy. So…
The last time Mike was in town we ran down to Target and grabbed a $89.99 bike trailer. Our thought is that if people are willing to place their children in those dangerous looking contraptions our Red camera should certainly be safe in one (of course I’ve never seen Mike on a bike so I probably shouldn’t be making those kinds of assumptions).
One would think that if you combine a great videographer like Mike with his mountain bike and a tow along trailer for the gear that we might end up with some great footage to share with all of you???
If we were one of those high-end production companies (the ones that wear button up shirts, roll in with 5-10 person production crews and black SUVs) we certainly wouldn’t be sharing these trade secrets with you. But that of course isn’t us.
We’re just a bunch of Montana guys and gals with a love for Glacier National Park and a desire to share this wonderful place with the rest of you!
So if you happen to see a crazy guy riding around the park on his mountain bike, pulling a child trailer with no children – make sure to stop him and tell him Hi!
Disclaimer: That may not be the actual trailer we bought and that definitely isn’t Mike’s bike (his is a slightly less impressive model with a little more wear and tear). It is however an authentic picture of Mike.
