Fun Friday: “Got Milk?”

While hiking Logan Pass in August, I came upon two Mountain Goat nannies, one with a kid, along the side of a mountain. They were not very active at the time, so I hung around for a little while. When one of the nannies stood up, her kid quickly moved underneath her to nurse: Photographic […]

Sunrise Hike at Logan Pass

During my recent visit to Glacier NP, I hiked at least one trail about every day. I typically like to start out very early in the morning, when the landscape is just becoming visible to the eye. Why? Several reasons. First, a lot less people out there, so I have nature more to myself! Second, […]

Ya Know It’s Gonna Be a Great Day …

… When You Come Across a Beautiful Valley View Like This! After 3 days of photographing on the west side of Glacier NP, it was time to move to my eastern position for the remainder of the trip. To get there, I drove the wonderful “Going-to-the-Sun Road”. Seemingly high into the clouds, it is easy […]
