Tour guide David Eglsaer loves the fact that his job lets him spend several months of the year among the stunning peaks of Montana’s Glacier national park
This is one of the greatest backyards ever created – and we get to spend a few months of every year in it. There are no towns inside the park, just five lodges and a few campgrounds. Most employees live in dormitory accommodation in the park: we’re here to help guests experience the park the way Mother Nature intended.
Glacier national park has 700 miles of hiking trails. It’s open all year round, but the bus tours only run between May and September, so many of us work here in summer and then go on to winter seasonal jobs at places like ski resorts.
