Avalanche Chutes on Mt. Cannon by 

Glacier National Park-Going to the Sun Road

Our first day in Glacier was so overcast & rainy that I was afraid I wouldn’t get any decent shots. We drove from the West entrance to Logan’s Pass and back again.

Repeated avalanches have flattened forest and marked the slopes of Mt. Cannon, creating a distinctive habitat on the steep mountainside. Hawthorns and serviceberries grow in the open, sunny chutes. Abundant berry bushes attract bears to the slide areas in late summer. Occasionally, mountain goats or other animals get caught in an avalanche and provide a feast of carrion for grizzles foraging in spring as the snow melts after their long winter slumber.

Our first day in Glacier was a rainy cloudy day we stayed on the western side near Columbia Falls, Montana, but it was a stunning sight in spite of the mist.

    What a stunning picture. That heavy cloud creates a really brooding and ominous landscape and you’ve captured it beautifully.

  • Thanks for your nice generous comment Peter, the day was so cloudy and rainy on the way to Logan’s pass that day and the scenery was so beautiful. I only managed to recover a few decent looking shots. Hugs, Bonnie

  • There were scenes like this around every turn! I have to find the shots of this area taken in 2010. These were from 2008.
