Entered Glacier National Park

We got to Glacier NP late in the day after driving/sightseeing all the way from Spokane, WA.  Or lodging was all the  way on the other side of Glacier at Many Glacier.  Even though it is kind of out of the way and requires more driving we like it there because we just about always see wildlife on the road to Many Glacier.
 Above:  This fellow was at Logan Pass in Glacier.  He was the only one there although later in the week there were several there, including some babies.

 Not long after we saw the mountain goat above we ran upon this fellow.  He wasn't afraid of us at all....licking the asphalt a lot of the time.

 As you can see from the shot above the sun is getting low in the sky.  If you will notice the car coming around the corner has its lights on.





 You can see where the road goes in both the shot above and the shot below if you look closely.  The road in Glacier is NOT very wide and you  have to pay attention when driving.  There is a rock wall on the side so you can't run off the road and tumble forever but you sure could damage your car if you  don't pay attention.

Beautiful images of unspoiled territory! When I see photos like this I can't help but wonder what the world looked like when it was new.
I LOVE the tunnel!
