Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Thanks for the eastside pictures. It has been along time since anyone has been able to post pictures of the park from Highway 89.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, We have been on Grave Creek Road near Eureka. We did some exploring in that area in November 2017. We did not go high enough to hit snow and ice but I remember thinking that road itself could be challenging in bad weather. and you were on a driveway off Grave Creek Road. I am glad you were abl...

Pete,

Your post helped me. I emailed another chat page member asking if she could get into the chat page becasue I could not. She responded that she could get in but that must be why Pete posted this message and she copied your post. So thanks.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete,

Thanks for the winter North Fork pictures. It looks like Saturdya was a nice day. I especailly like the pano looking north from the bridge at Polebridge. And I think the first barn picture shows a lot of character.

Good to hear that your eye is doing well.

Re: 2021 summer trip questions

Gunsight Pass - Sperry - Lake McDonald would be great if you can get two or three nights at campsites or one night at Sperry Chalet and one or two nights at campsites. But as Faribanks said it is not an easy trail. I think the views of Gunsight Lake and the rock patterns on the mountainside across t...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Ouch - I should have said be careful on wet rocks and parking areas.

I am glad you are feeling better. Tailbone bruises can hurt for a while. I hope you heal quickly.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, I think the reflections in your first picture are great. There is more orange color in the water reflections than on the mountains. I like the water flowing over the rocks too. But be careful around those wet rocks. Interesting idea - a grilled steak at the Apgar campground on Christmas Eve. W...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, You have a lot of great pictures here. I like the aspens along the Polebridge Road. The aspens provide incredible contrast to the other colors. However, I really like your "practice" image of the pine tree and aspens. The detail is great. I particularly like the pine cones and pine needles in ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

That last Avalanche Creek picture is great. I have never seen the water in Avalanche Creek that low

And the St. Mary Lake picture you posted is good - I can imagine the 12 x 36 print is great.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, I am glad you had mostly decent weather for your Granite Park Chalet trip. I noticed on the Park page that the GTTS road was closed at Avalanche today because of winter weather. Tonight was probably not such a good night to have a Granite Park Chalet reservation. It has been four or five years...

Pete,

Your Smugmug link takes me to the general Smugmug page (www.smugmug), not to your pictures.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, You have a bunch of incredible photographs that you have posted lately. I have never tried making panoramas but but it looks fascinating. I am glad you found that old thread about the Alder Trail. When wynsteve asked about the Alder Trail I knew we had had a discussion about it a few years ago...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, thanks for the pictures.

I tend to think the air at Logan Pass is usually clear but you pictures show really clear air. The Glacier lilies are great - especially that close to the Visitor Center.

And, yes, it looks like trips to Logan Pass will require really early start times.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, Those ice pictures are fascinating - especially the ice on the rocks. I am thinking about how the water was blown onto the rocks and then froze in place. It had to be really windy to get the water up there and then quite cold to freeze the water before it ran off the rocks. And great to see pi...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete,

Those are some great pictures. I especially like the last two - great resolution and color contrast.

Sorry for the loss of your friend.
