Continuing the series of posts with photos that were posted to Facebook while I was on the road this summer . . .
After a few wonderful days in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, I head to Glacier National Park in Montana. When I visited the park in late June last year – it was still covered with snow. Going to the Sun Road was closed – and I couldn’t get anywhere near Logan Pass.
What a difference 13 months makes . . . I arrived at Glacier National Park after the historic lastest date for Going to the Sun Road to open. I wanted to do everything I could to increase the chances that I’d actually be able to see the whole park this year. This year – the road through Logan Pass opened sometime in June. By the time I arrived – summer was in full bloom in the park. Without a doubt – Glacier is one of the most beautiful national parks I”ve ever visited.
The combination of lakes and mountains at Glacier are wonderful to photograph.
St. Mary Lake
And the only thing more beautiful than the lakes and mountains were the wildflowers!
Yellow Columbine – aquilegia flavescens
Cow Parsnip – heracleum maximum
White bog orchid – platanthere dilatata
Sticky Geranium – geranium viscosissimum
It’s probably not a surprise to anyone – I’m already dreaming of when I can next visit Glacier National Park!
