Marmotmania

Today, I’m featuring a few more images of an adult Hoary Marmot that I found around the Lunch Creek (Glacier NP, Montana) parking area. These furry mammals are fun to watch! Here are a few of my favorite images of this single adult marmot: And if you missed last Friday’s “Fun Friday” post of this […]

Fun Friday: Where’s My Readers?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the Lunch Creek area of Glacier National Park (Montana) during my recent trip. I pulled over at the Lunch Creek parking area so I could check out and photograph the wildflowers and waterfall there. Once I exited the car and headed to the waterfall, I noticed this mature Hoary […]

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

When I recently traveled to Glacier National Park (northwest Montana), I was really looking forward to some great night skies photography. What I didn’t realize was that there were some nearby wildfires and they literally created havoc with any photography that included the sky or distant landscapes! That is, except … when shooting afternoon skies! […]

As you may have realized, I have been away from the computer and social media for a couple of weeks. I just returned from a wonderful trip to beautiful Glacier National Park, in northwestern Montana.

Fun Friday: Peek-a-Boo!

Fun Friday: Not “(Quite)” What It Looks Like!

During my July trip to Glacier NP, I caught some flack from my wife. As we drove along the top of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, I was mesmerized by the many waterfalls that were active across the valley. At one point, I saw a good pullout and decided to grab a scenic shot of one of […]

Bear Grass

On my first entry into Glacier NP, I thought I would not see Bear Grass (Xerophyllum tenax) wildflowers growing. The late snowstorm had made pretty much everything in the park late, and there was very little Bear Grass growing on the first day … and the few plants seen were not really accessible for photography.

Fun Friday: Talk About a Burrow!

While photographing Mountain Goats in the rocky landscape of Glacier NP, an amusing Hoary Marmot (Marmota caligata) ran about the snow slope and ended up at his “burrow”, which was actually a hole he had dug into the deep snow, just to get to his burrow! Glacier NP received a heavy snowstorm in late June, […]
