Besides the “Going To The Sun Road”, Glacier National Park’s main attraction has to be the Mountain Goats. With a new kid in tow, this mother surveys the scene while taking a brief rest.


Occasionally all the elements come together just at the right time. We were headed back down the GTTS road when an different light appeared above a distant mountain. I pulled over and began shooting. The light drifted across the scene, lighting the lower roadway several thousand feet below us just as rain began to fall. I was so caught up in the experience, a mule deer climbed up the hill side right in front on me. With a long lens in place, I wasn’t able to incorporate him into the shot, so I just kept shooting the landscape while the deer looked around hoping for hand outs.
