I spent today at Glacier National Park in Montana where the rangers are wearing black bands on their badges in honor of Mount Rainier National Park climbing ranger Nick Hall. Hall died last week when he fell on the Emmons Glacier while working to save four climbers from Texas.

While all national parks are flying flags at half staff and wearing black bands on ranger badges, at Glacier three different flags are flying at half staff. The United States, Canada and Blackfeet Nation flags all are at half staff in honor of Hall. Glacier National Park borders the Blackfeet Indian Reservation to the east and Canada’s Waterton Lakes National Park to the north.
