Artist's Description

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.
