An old sunset shot of a fabulous day winding down at Glacier Park's Two Medicine Lake. Mt. Sinopah rises majestically in the distance.

The region was considered sacred ground by several Native American tribes including the Blackfeet. They performed Vision quests here.
Spending time here truly is a spiritual experience.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Be well!

A grand sunrise at Lake McDonald. Only lasted a couple minutes then the colors faded away. Such a treat to see and savor such natural delights.

"Although the Sun appears to "rise" from the horizon, it is actually the Earth's motion that causes the Sun to appear. The illusion of a moving Sun results from Earth observers being in a rotating reference frame; this apparent motion is so convincing that many cultures had mythologies and religions built around the geocentric model, which prevailed until astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus formulated his heliocentric model in the 16th century."

Please keep safe and well!

Snowing today, felt like sharing some color. This colorful hauler was seen at windy Marias Pass.

"Red Jammers are buses used at Glacier National Park in the United States to transport park visitors. While the buses are called reds, the bus drivers are called jammers because of the sound the gears made when the driver shifts on the steep roads of the park. The "jamming" sound came from the unsynchronised transmissions, where double-clutching was a must.

They were manufactured as the Model 706 by the White Motor Company from 1936-1939. The distinctive vehicles, with roll-back canvas convertible tops allow riders to enjoy the many peaks that hug the roads. Glacier National Park still operates 33 of these unique vehicles." Wikipedia

Well off to shovel snow....which I actually enjoy. Until later in the winter.....

Have a most wonderful weekend!

All was tranquil and serene this chilly autumn morning with Never Laughs Mountain, Teepee Peak and Mt. Sinopah reflecting in Pray Lake's still waters.

Love camping at Glacier Park's Two Medicine area. Overdue for a return.

Hope your Thursday is off to a wonderful start!

An early morning shot of Mt. Sinopah rising nobly above Two Medicine Lake.

The Blackfeet Indians considered the Two Medicine area "The Backbone of the World! They used this portion of what would eventually become Glacier National Park for vision quests and spiritual celebrations.

It is indeed a special area. I agree as this is one of my favorite places to be. I'm overdue for a return....

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
