Cabin in the Woods

The images in today’s post comes from a hike near the St. Mary Lake, on the east side of Glacier NP (Montana) in August.

Sitting at the edge of a wooded area, this old (and no longer used) ranger cabin sits:

As you can see, lots of wildflowers (mainly Daisies) are growing around the cabin, along with assorted “weeds” and some tree saplings. A closer look at the daisies:

And if you stand in front of the cabin, this is the view of the St. Mary Lake valley:

This would have been ideal weekend “getaway” spot! In this last image, there are lots of Fireweed wildflowers blooming, indicating that summer is about over and snow will soon replace all the color in the valley.
