The views from Going to the Sun Road which cross the park are incredible.
The hike out to this lake was magical.
Waterton Lakes National Park adjoins Glacier National Park. The two meet at the USA / Canada border. The building in this image is the Prince of Wales hotel. It’s an an amazing architectural gem in a stunning location.
As I’ve been going back through old images and posting them, it’s given me the chance to review my past trips with some mental distance from the experience of being there. The majority of the images I’ve posted since this lockdown began are ones that I haven’t published previously. In one sense, they are the B-roll that didn’t make the cut when I published the trip gallery. Some of the time, I find images that I like better than the ones I published earlier.
What I’m finding remarkable about Glacier National Park is that there are so many amazing vistas in the “B-roll”. It’s one the most grand places I’ve ever been. I’ve often said Banff is the prettiest place North America and it’s absolutely lovely. But Glacier is more majestic and it has taken me going back through my images from Glacier to fully realize it. I’d love to go back. Maybe when this craziness is over, I will.
November mornings in the desert are really cold but the joshua trees are beautiful at sunrise.

The peaks in Zion National Park all have outlandish names. The one of the interpretive signs says the names were early visitors method of making sense of the grandeur of the place.
