September 11, 2007 - Glacier National Park
We went into Glacier National Park early this morning, planning on catching the sunrise in there. It took so long to get to the park boundaries and the road to get there didn't allow for many stops when the sun was coming up. But, by the time we got into the park the sun/shadows were vivid so that was nice. It really is a wonderful park; with mountains, trees and water....all the elements I look for in landscape photos. Unfortunately, the smoke drift made for difficult photography in some places and that was a disappointment, but we were there and I took as many photos as I could and will delete the ones which were too smoky to see details. The Flathead River stops were some of my favorites. There wasn't a lot of water in most places, but the pools and cascades were just fantastic.
Tomorrow we will go the the Many Glaciers area, hopefully the smoke will not be too bad to see the glaciers there.
