~Glacier National Park and the Hungry Horse Area~

 

“I have no words to adequately describe the raw beauty of Glacier National Park. 

Nor, do I have the words to express, the feeling of pure joy, while I stand in this beauty.”

 

These photos were taken this afternoon, in Glacier National Park, driving to the Fish Creek area.

Not far from Fish Creek Campground. Photo taken from the west side of McDonald Lake looking east.

These photos were taken yesterday on our way to Logan Pass, in Glacier National Park. The day was cloudy and last night we had a thunderstorm pass over.

Going-to-the-Sun road. It is a pretty scary road to travel! We went as far as Logan Pass.

  1. So right…there are no words Sheila! Your pictures are spectacular. I’m wishing I could be there to also enjoy the smells and sounds!

    I am so glad your “over the falls” story had a happy ending!

    1. It was worth it, but as my hubby stated – white knuckle time! One the one side we had the drop off, one the other side in places protruding rocks. People going both directions wanted to hug the middle!!
