Just south of Glacier National Park there is a stream that parallels Highway 2. The Aspens on it’s banks were changing to their golden fall colors when we were there providing a nice contrast to red rocks in the crystalline water. THe weather was a perfect as it appears. It would have been nice to have a few nice poofty white clouds to break up that bright blue sky, but hey… I’m not complaining.
Typically when I think of Autumn colors, I envision the changing of trees from their spring & summer palate of greens, to the Autumn colors of golds & reds. That is not always possible. There are very few trees that survive the altitude at Logan’s Pass in Glacier National Park, so nature paints the ground with the colors of fall. The beautiful Autumn day Beverly & I made the hike from Logan’s Pass to Hidden Lake the weather was perfect. There was only the slightest hint of the cold that would soon overtake the mountain. Meanwhile, amazing clouds flowing over the contours of the land provided the perfect backdrop for the high country grasses awash with Autumn golds and reds.
