This is just a quick post, yesterday I was in awe driving through Montana the first half of the day and then traveling in awe around West Glacier National Park. Driving and stopping, grabbing the camera, and then driving some more. That’s really what I did all day. I have some pictures of course. Today it provided too much rain, but too a 5 mile hike to Avalanche Lake and back. I hiked around the lake to where several streams spill into the lake. Someone noticed a three moving spots on the snow way above us. It wasn’t long before you could see they were bears. A sow and her cubs; but they were big cubs. They kept coming our way until the few who were still hanging around decided to leave. I noticed a couple that had just come out of the woods from where the bears seemed to be heading. The sat down to snack on something. I headed back their way and called out to them since they were on the other side of the stream from me. Once they understood what I was saying they, without hesitation grabbed their bags and ran across the icy stream. They were thankful for the heads-up.
Since I’m paying for my time online I can’t write more right now. Going back-country hiking tomorrow so you won’t hear from me for a couple of days at least.
