    Very cool looking Mike! This is one where adding the human element really works.

    And this shot is making me really miss Glacier and especially Logan Pass. That’s a favorite area of mine and I haven’t been there to shoot it in a couple of years. :(

    Nice skies for this shot. I was up at Logan Pass yesterday but only hiked on the Hidden Lake Trail. I like the hiker on the trail and the red bus on the far side of the switchback over on the right. It's hard to track scale in shots like these at Glacier.

    I did get a bunch. I posted some flowers along the trail this morning but haven't processed most of the mountain views yet. I did have some nice broken clouds yesterday for shooting the lake area with fresh snow on the distant peaks.

    Thanks Jim. Happy to hear that you liked this picture. This was my first visit to Glacier and we had a great time. Hope to visit the Park again someday -there are so many opportunities to capture good images.

    Hey, Mike. Great image. I used to teach geology field courses at Glacier National Park and this is one of the stops so this brings back a lot of memories. Have you gone all the way to Granite Park Chalet to sample their pies? They are yummy.

    Hi Doug, thanks for your comment. I really appreciate it!!! It must have been a fantastic place to teach geology field courses. I loved seeing the many geological formations in Glacier. I did hike to the Granite Park Chalet but unfortunately did not know about their great tasting pies at the time. I will have to save that pleasure for another trip.

    Definitely a shot that I more fully appreciate with the hiker there for scale. Quite a view the person must have had.
