Photographer's Note

This is the first in my travelogue from my cross country road trip I have recently returned from. Generally, the trip went through the northern part of the country, covering over 9,300 miles and 32 days. For now I will be posting random pictures and I'll eventually get around to putting them all into a travelogue.

This shot is of Glacier National Park very near the St Mary Entrance on the East Side of the Park. Glacier is truly the most amazing national park I've seen (8 in total were visited on this trip). The clouds in this picture are completely untouched. Everyday the landscaped seemed new and had somewhere to take amazing photos.

The park was established in 1932 and named a world heritage site in 1995. The park encompasses over 1,000,000 acres and over 700 miles of hiking trails wind throughout. One of the most spectacular part of the park is Going to the Sun Road which stretchs about 50 miles from St Mary on the east side to West Glacier on the west. The road is the most stunning work of engineering I've probably ever seen. Built litterally into the side of glacial mountains, it offers amazing views right from the car. I will get some pictures up of the road and a great dayhike soon.
