When I was leaving Glacier NP (Montana) during my August photo trip, I could not drive through the park to exit on the west side. Two nights earlier, a storm came through and lightning started a fire inside the park, on the west side, causing the road to be closed and even evacuation of the Lake McDonald lodge there. Since I needed to travel down the east side of the park, I decided to leave early and stop for some photography in the southeast region of the park, an area I hadn’t previously visited.
One of the places that sounded interesting was the hike to Aster Falls. This hike was about 2.5 miles from the trailhead and ended (for me) at Aster Falls. This was a beautiful waterfall, tucked back into the trees and surrounded by yellow wildflowers. Very picturesque:
The lighting seemed to be ever changing here, making photography a bit challenging but such beautiful area!
Note: If you live in the Kansas City area, I will have a booth at the Lee’s Summit Art Festival this coming weekend, Friday Oct. 12 (4pm to 8pm), Saturday Oct. 13 (10am to 8pm), and Sunday Oct. 14 (11am to 4pm) … stop by and say “Hi”. I will have some paper and metal prints of my August trip to Glacier NP on display.
