Mist hangs over the Middle Fork of the Flathead Monday evening as the clouds broke briefly. The region has seen three straight weeks on gray, wet weather.

Glacier National Park and the Summit Medical Fitness Center invite the community to Park Prescription (Rx) Day, Sunday, April 23 at Lake McDonald Lodge from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
