Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

This week’s photo challenge is DOWN!  
My photo was taken in Glacier National Park at Logan Pass, looking toward the Garden Wall.  The Garden Wall is the rock spine that separates the Many Glacier region from the Lake McDonald valley in the park.   

Looking DOWN the rocky mountains of the Garden Wall, you can see the famous Going To The Sun Road, cut into the rock,  as it winds around the mountains,  very high above the ground!  (light brown line) The road crosses the park from east to west.   If you squint you might be able to see a car DOWN there!  (much more apparent in my full sized image)

At Logan Pass with pink and yellow wildflowers, looking toward the garden wall (mountains).  Looking DOWN you can see the tan colored Going To The Sun Road.

Wild Goose, Logan’s and Salamanders. Where are we?

We are in Glacier National Park, Montana!  It’s one of my favorite places.  I have some photos to share with you.  I took them on our last trip in 2008.  The first picture is of Wild Goose Island on St. Mary’s Lake. Hopefully you can see the tiny island in the middle of this 10 mile long lake.  

It’s a beautiful spot for photos, especially in the morning.  It’s on the east side of the park, so anything on the east side will be good for morning shots.  The west side is perfect for late afternoon and early evening photo shoots.  I’ve read that you can go to Wild Goose Island in a boat…but I haven’t tried this.  Yet!
