Happy birthday, Dick. I know that you love memories, so I thought you would enjoy this photo of one of Glacier National Park's old touring cars.

Glacier Natiional park was created in 1910 by Pres. Taft, who signed the bill making it this country's 10th national park. Waterton Lakes National Park (in Canada) was created in 1895, and was in recent years combined with Glacier. It is the first international peace park, where both parks are combined, but administered separately.

This old touring car was designed and made by the White Co. They were known as "jammers" because you could hear the drivers changing gears as they toiled up the steep road and around the curves. They have been recently refurbished by the Ford Motor Co., making a come-back to cross the 50 mile trip on Going To the Sun Rd, which traverses the park east and west.

All of the glaciers for which the park was made, are shrinking and will be gone in a couple of decades. The park is known for its hanging valleys.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DICK!
