Rain in western Montana Monday did little to slow fire growth across the state.

"Well it’s a mixed blessing," said Jay Nichols, a spokesperson assigned to the Monument and Wigwam Fires burning south of Ennis. "So obviously wind isn’t a good thing, rain’s a good thing, but I don’t know that it will be a substantial amount of rain."

Perhaps you’ve seen this now-viral video of a man harassing a bison this week in Yellowstone National Park. That man, Raymond Reinke of Pendleton, Oregon, was arrested Thursday in Glacier National Park.

The 55-year-old Reinke visited several national parks this week. None of those stops went very well.

At the top of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, a giant rotary plow shoots snow 40 feet up into the air before it arcs into a free-falling cascade over the eastern edge of the Continental Divide.

Plow crews hit asphalt along the entire length of Going-To-The-Sun Road Thursday. There’s still no opening date set. Right now, cars are being stopped at the Avalanche Creek parking lot on the West Side and the Jackson Glacier Overlook on the East Side.

Glacier National Park opened another section of Going-To-The-Sun Road to car traffic Friday.

Vehicles can now drive to Avalanche Creek from West Glacier. Bikers and hikers can continue up the road beyond that point.
