proofrok: You went to Glacier?!? You lucky son of a .... It's my #1 get-to locale. Btw, I've done two cross-country trips, hitting up lots of NPs along the way. The Badlands is spectacular. The primitive campground is so legit. But, to go backcountry, you need to make provisions: You have to get permission from the natives whose land you'll cross—personally. Just a tip. Ugh! What I wouldn't give to be on a backcountry trail right about now. You lucky dog you!

Yeah! GNP is hands down definetely one of the best NP parks in the country. The sheer density of mountains, lakes, glaciers, etc., is simply mind blowing for such a tiny area.
I was there for a little under a week for this trip; the first three days I was snowed out, so most of “going-to-the-sun” road was closed due to the weather, but after the forecast brought some sun, it was hikes for days.

I’m totally thinking about getting a few people together for some backpacking through Badlands/GNP/YNP sometime next year. If people can get enough time off, then maybe we could turn it into a month long tour.

You’re right about provisions - I’m coming to understand that each park, for the most part, extends differing permissions to people wishing to back country camp. For example, the Tetons NP rangers simply ask you to plan a trip and “let them know” for approximately how long you’d be gone, along with which camps you plan to stay at during your trek.  They even give you food storage barrels free of charge!
