The US… Glacier National Park
Doesn’t it look like a face of someone lying on their back?
Lake McDonald, so pretty, got handstanded!

Morning light coming through the trees in Glacier National Park, on my way up to Avalanche Lake
Avalanche Lake, check out those falls!
Trail up the mountain…

And another view… what a beautiful place.
About to leave the U.S.
Made it to Canada!
Welcome to B.C.
They are a little full of themselves though?

View from Swansea Mountain this past friday night. Had to take a forestry road up there and we sure needed Forrest’s 4-wheel drive
Invermere, B.C., Canada and that “ramp” is for hang gliders. Pretty cool, eh?
Cropped night shot of Invermere
From the back of the boat! It’s the same lake as in the picture above on the left
I went for a quick glider ride. Wish it was longer, but too much money in the first place… Definitely worth it though! That’s my pilot Brian, who had us do a “wingover”, basically a flip which was outta this world.

A different view of Swansea Mountain… See the glider ramp from the shot above?
This club sounded great, would totally do it if i lived here!
Captions added and… I will report more on Canada as I see it. Off to Banff today! Cheers.
I got played around with HDRs last night and made 3 of them… (High Dynamic Range images which are created by combining 3 pictures with different exposure levels)
Ptarmigan Tunnel (Say that 5 times real fast )
The other side of the Ptarmigan Tunnel, WOW.
The Badlands make you feel good inside.
P.S. – If anyone hasn’t noticed… I had coffee this morning
I’m lazy, I know. I’ve been sitting around doing laundry and checking for cheap flights so Kristen can make it out to San Francisco to meet me (and not finding much cheaper than 500 bucks, yikes!)
Anyways, My first day in Glacier (Monday), I headed up to the “Many Glacier” entrance of the National Park and hiked the Iceberg Lake and then the Ptarmigan Tunnel Trail. That was a 15 miles day, and didn’t really wear me out until the next day. I did enjoy the Pancake, Sausage and Coffee breakfast. Warm food does hit the spot!
Yesterday I went drove up the “Going-to-the-sun-road” and headed up to logans pass. I did a portion of the “Garden Wall” and then hiked up Logan’s pass to hidden lake. It wasn’t much of a hiking day, maybe 6 miles, but good enough! I came back to my site (already set up because I actually stayed in the same place for 2 nights!) and enjoyed a smoked sausage on my manly fire I made.
Today I’m going to head over to the western side of the park and am going to check it out!
Pics… In absolutely no order, but with captions!
“Hidden” lake… I SEE IT!

Something is Wrong? with this picture.
Lions and Tigers and Grizzly ____’s O-MY!
I made it to Glacier National Park, but really just spent the afternoon laying around… Need to rest up every once in a while. The mountains really are HUGE, the wind is STRONG and it’s quite chilly. I’ll be up here til Friday when I go meet up with my Canadian friends! Picked up the park map and hiking info so I can get to it starting tomorrow.
