Glacier National Park • 

Just west of Browning Montana I crested a hill and laid out before me were miles and miles of golden aspen lining the foothills of the towering glacial sculptures of the Lewis Range of Glacier National Park, and I was stunned

Glacier National Park includes two mountain ranges and incorporates more than 25 glaciers, over 130 named lakes, 200 waterfalls, and more than 1,000 different plant species.  Known as the “Crown of the Continent Ecosystem,” it includes over 16,000 square miles of protected land surrounding the park.

Wildlife is as abundant as Glacier’s scores of stunning peaks.  From mountain goats, bighorn sheep, grizzly bear, wolves and bald eagles. In October, the elk rut is still happening for those who desire a little wildlife action. Grizzlies can be found on the south facing slopes when lucky. In a rare display of wisdom in 1897 the U.S. Congress designated this area as a forest preserve. In 1910, they turned it into our tenth National Park.

St. Mary Lake is located just inside Glacier National Park’s east entrance, this ten-mile long water filled chasm under the snow covered peaks above St. Marys Lake cast a beautiful reflection for the lucky photographer who can beat the Montana wind to the lakeshore. Wild Goose Island is a pretty compositional element put in the lake just for us photographers. The Going To the Sun Road runs along the north bank of St. Marys Lake

The east slope of the Glacier National Park’s Lewis Range in October is clearly one of Montana’s undiscovered treasures. Miles and miles of golden aspen light up the lower slopes of this magnificent landscape. Oddly there is nobody here. Except for maybe us.Glacier’s golden hues of autumn begin peaking in early October so late September to mid-October is typically the best time to view fall foliage in Northwest Montana. This is when its deciduous trees include maples, larch, cottonwood and aspen put on their annual show. Maple trees dot the hiking trails and turn to hues of yellow, orange and red. The larch and aspens turn to bright yellows and gold often set in a carpet of Montana’s huckleberry bushes. These trees are often mixed among the  evergreens, so the foliage displays the brilliant reds and golds juxtaposed against the greens of the conifers and crowned by the auburns, greys, and tans of the limestone and dolomite peaks. The appearance of fall color varies, because of elevation, late-September to mid-October is typically the best time to view fall foliage in Northwest Montana.

The magic of Two Medicine Lake during autumn offers some beautiful cottonwoods around the lake for the visiting photographer. Sinoipha Mountain to the west is a magnificent compositional element for this stunning two-mile long lake and the massive Rising Wolf Mountain soaring 4,400 feet above it to the north is much more than another accent to an already stunning landscape. Two Medicine Lake is known for its brook and rainbow trout which is of much interest to the multi-tasking photographer/fisherman. Here, you can find the trailhead leading to the interior of the park, including the Dawson-Pitamakin Loop Trail and Cobalt Lake Trail. Two Medicine Lake is a popular destination for hiking, fishing, camping as well as nature’s elemental therapy for the mind.
