Autumn Glory


Glacier National Park is an hour drive for me.
Enter the park and it's spirit is tangibly. 
Certainly crossing a threshold into the sublime and earthy. 


'Going to the Sun'
is the name of the road that travels through the park, 
west to east. 
It travels high into the Rocky mountains to Logan Pass and back down the east side. 


do you see the road over on the right side of the mountains? (above)

They closed the road in the summer due to wildfires. 
Thankfully they opened it up a bit ago. 
Soon the road will close due to snow until next summer. 
There is a small bit of days that one can journey the road to see these views and colors.


it was a gorgeous blue skied day
but the clouds were there too 
adding to the drama, light and shadows


water is still flowing
even after a long hot summer


the high peaks are kissed with light snow


even though the grand views got our attention
the little ones captured my heart as well
raindrops


 I nearly covered the tiny island 
by the branch of the tree
but there it is
a glimpse of treasure.

Lovely days and nights to you!

  11. I didn't know that Going to the Sun road was closed due to wildfires - and good that it is open again until it shuts down again for winter. Every time I went up here I enjoyed the beautiful drive and the stunning views. We once hiked from Logan Pass along the Highline Trail to Granite Park Chalet and down to the "Loop" - 12 miles, and every single step was so worth it.

  12. Autumn has surely arrived in your area, Tammie Lee. I love the raindrops picture on the Autumn leaves, so pretty. And "going to the sun" photo is beautiful. You can really see the Autumn loveliness here.

  15. Dear Tammie - Looks like you had a great time before it gets too cold. Yes, I see the “Going to the Sun” road running horizontally on the side of the mountain. Thank you for sharing the glorious autumn of your mountains. Hope the wildfires during the summer didn’t cause many damages.
