My campsite at Johnson's RV park overnight
A view of the mountains from the parking lot of Johnson's RV Park
Cliffs overlooking the east side of Glacier Natl Park
Raining over the park, making lots of rainbows.
Here's the other side of the rainbow!
Looking west from Highway 89 into Glacier NP. Lots of clouds in the valley!
Heading up into Many Glaciers, along Rt 3, rainbows north of Lake Sherburne
Double rainbow, with the faint one covering Apikuni Mountain.
Rainbow and bands of light and shadow, Many Glaciers region, Glacier Natl Park
Rainy morning in early September, driving west into Glacier NP.
Lake Sherburne is pretty low in early fall. Double rainbow.
Cliffs in Many Glaciers region through the bright part of the rainbow.
Driving in further to the west, another great view of the rainbow.
Got a nice spot for the next 3 days at the Many Glaciers campground.
Sun shining intermittently on wet cliffs over the Swiftcurrent Motor Lodge
Went to Many Glaciers Lodge to buy boat tickets for tomorrow. Walking from the parking lot...
Great view of Mount Grinnell
Spot a photogenic thistle walking from the parking lot to Many Glaciers Lodge.
Mount Grinnell behind the boat dock at Many Glaciers Lodge
Boat dock at Many Glaciers Lodge. Raindrops on superwide lens.
Heading to the east, out of the Many Glaciers region, the sun comes out on the foreground.
Wild Goose Island in Saint Mary Lake, Glacier NP
Another view of Wild Goose Island in Saint Mary Lake, Glacier NP
Boat heading across Saint Mary Lake
First big view of the valley, lots of rain!
More views of the rain along Going-To-The-Sun Road.
Clouds coming up hard against the cliffs.
Looking to the west, more clouds and rain coming in.
View of the road and the stream deep down in the valley to the west
View towards the west through the rain along Going-To-The-Sun Road.
Coming down out of the clouds, I spot a clear cut trail in the valley.
The sun has come out for a bit along Going-To-The-Sun Road.
Many of us stopped to enjoy the sun and marvel at the clouds that we came through.
Clouds still hiding many peaks to the east.
Clouds on the ridges west of Logan Pass
Clouds on the ridges west of Logan Pass
Bits of direct sun breaking through the clouds
Now bits of sun on the ridges west of Logan Pass
Reaching to the light!
Arriving at Red Rock Point, establishing shot of the top of the rapids
Beautiful red and green rocks with clear green pools.
White showy daisies still in bloom in early September.
