The road to Glacier National Park in NW Montana is often under appreciated. From Coram to West Glacier lies seven miles of beauty. The views may not be as spectacular as inside the park itself, but they're still worthy of notice.
Occasionally, you just forget to stop and smell the roses. And in NW Montana, that's a crying shame. Fortunate enough to live just seven miles away from Glacier National Park, I feast on these delights on a daily basis, regretfully at times, with eyes wide shut. So when a rare summer day in springtime hit NW Montana, it was time to grab the camera and reacquaint myself, with the place I'm fortunate enough to call home.
The following images were taken along a single seven mile stretch of road.
This rugged section of the northern Rockies boasts mountain goats (who occasionally appear in the bathrooms at Logan Pass), wolves, mountain lions, black bears and their much fiercer cousin, the grizzly bear. Fortunately we avoided those, but a young friendly doe did stop to say hello.
