Tune: Singin' in the Rain
Lyrics: Deb Gerace, Artist in Residence, 2008

I’m singin’ on the trail, just singin’ on the trail.
Compared to a grizz-ly, I’m tiny and frail.
Don’t want to surprise – those big hairy guys,
I’m singin’, just singin’ on the trail.

I’m packin’ in and out, just packin’ in and out.
The rule, without a doubt is - don’t spread your trash about.
If you’re on a hike, or even a bike,
At Glacier, just pack it in and out.

Take water on the trip, take more than just a drip.
The humi-dity is low here, you’ll need - several sips!
De-hy-drate and cramp – if you don’t stay damp,
Take water, more water on the trip!

Take along a friend, just take along a friend.
Be sure - to pick some-one on whom – you can depend.
If something goes wrong – you’ll be twice as strong.
Think ‘safety,’ and take along a friend.

Grizzly bears

Grizzly bears in the park have a wide variety of food sources, including glacier lily bulbs, insects, and berries. They may also make an early season meal of mountain goats that were swept down in avalanches over the winter.
