Logan Pass area photos in Glacier PArk
Now BRAND NEW Glacier National Park Logan Pass 18"x24" Photographic Poster
The wildflowers in Glacier National Park are absolutely beautiful and worth your trip to Northwest Montana. Different wildflowers can be seen at different times of the summer.
This beautiful 24"x18" poster was created from a photograph shot from the Hidden Lake Trail just above Logan Pass. Although the Park has brilliant displays of wildflowers most every year, the photo in this poster was shot during an exceptionally beautiful season several years ago.
Logan Pass, July 4th, 2008 the long anticipated opening of the Going to the Sun Highway and Logan Pass for 2008 occurred on July 2nd. Huge drifts and avalanches prevented the crews from breaking through. This was one of the latest openings since 1943 during World War II when they opened July 10th.
The day was beautiful, with temperatures running in the upper 60s and lower 70s. There was a Bighorn Sheep in the parking lot and others just off the lot on the lower side.
I have included a photo of the dug out sidewalk leading up to the Hidden Lake boardwalk. I didn't bring my snow shoes so did not attempt to walk on the 8 ft drifts leading to Hidden Lake.
"Logan Pass ,May 24 2005 I went up to see what was going on. The pass was cleared and open for travel Sunday May 22, 2005. It was raining like mad in the valley so I couldn't see going up. I figured the photos wouldn't be that good.
However, today when I went up, it was beautiful. The sun was shining and I had a beautiful blue sky with a touch of clouds when I went up. I caught some mirror like reflections on Lake McDonald on the way up. Then caught some beautiful photos up at Logan Pass.
I will post the photos as soon as I get them developed. Looking at the 2004 photos, it looks like we have a lot more snow up there this year (of course we are a week or so earlier too!) Just like last year, the weather turned on me and there was a touch touch of snowfall on the way down (this turned into rain by the time I was halfway down the Going to the Sun Highway.
Check back for update! I took some great photos including a motor home going through the "Big Drift" area. The top of the drift was twice as high as the motor home!
Last year Logan Pass opened for the 2004 season on May 30th, 2004 and I was there for the opening. Although the trip up the west side from Lake McDonald was beautiful, the pass still had remnants of winter. The parking lot was completely plowed and several cars had made it before me. A mini snow squall came through while I was sitting there wondering how the mountain goats and Big Horn sheep could possibly survive the many dozen feet of snow that falls every winter. "
Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, offers some beautiful mountain views as well as close ups of Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep and beautiful wildflowers.
took my time going back down, taking some photos as I went. The sites
were beautiful and breathtaking as they always are in Glacier National
Park. There was some rain mixed with snow much of the way. But periodically
the clouds opened up and offered beautiful views of the west side of
the park such as this view of the McDonald valley.
