September 12, 2007 - Many Glaciers
We had a wonderful day and a disappointing day. We awoke to a cold fog and some rain, but decided to head for the Many Glaciers area and hope the fog would lift by the time we drove there. No such luck. I am choosing to think of my photography today as "atmospheric" and not complain. I was, however, the coldest I can remember being for a long time. It was in the high 30's, very foggy and raining at times. When a cold wind would blow the fog away from where we were it was fairly clear, but at no time could we see the mountains or their glaciers very well. Oh well, we hope to return here next Spring (late June here) and take in the wildflowers and hopefully see this area with the sun on the glaciers.
Overall, it was still an enjoyable day and worth going while we were here. One good thing, we stopped at a small cafe for lunch that was little more than a small diner and had lunch. We each had a bowl of buffalo and black bean chili (positively delicious!) and split a huge Reuben sandwich (equally excellent). The place seemed to be popular and I can see why, it was spotless and provided very special food. While at that point anything warm would have been welcome, it was nice that it was also delicious.
Tomorrow we plan to head toward Anaconda, MT and try some sapphire mining, should be fun if the weather cooperates.
