I've been to Sperry Glacier, and I suspect that's why I wanted this postcard. It's on the north slope of Gunsight Mountain in Glacier National Park in Montana. It's not a short hike, but it is doable as a day trip. The last time I was in Glacier was at least 15 years ago, and Sperry was a lot smaller than it is in this photograph, and if predictions hold true, it will be gone, along with the other surviving glaciers in the park, by 2020.
This card is postmarked "ANACONDA MONTANA, JUL 18, 2-P.M. 1916" It's addressed to "Miss Marg Bryan, 2732 Renick St., St. Joe, Mo." No message, though. Glacier National Park was established in 1910.
