A Few More Pictures to Share

I thought I’d share a few more pictures. All but one of them are pictures from places in Glacier National Park, but they are views that I don’t commonly share. That one exception is a picture of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Why I chose Jackson Hole is an open question. I just like the picture. It has been a lot of years since I visited, but it hasn’t changed a great deal, from the look of it.

Logan Pass

This picture of Logan Pass shows that there is still a lot of snow in the upper elevations. This spot has an elevation of 6,646 feet and the main part of the spring thaw hasn't occurred yet. Keep in mind that this was taken on June 8.

Saint Mary

This is the view from the Saint Mary visitor center in Glacier National park. The elevation is 4,551 feet and at the time of the picture, it was toasty warm...almost 50 F. The last time I shared this view, it was entirely white from the snow cover.

Two Medicine

Two Medicine in Glacier is astounding, regardless of the time of year. A lot of snow falls here, but it is now melted, except on the mountain slopes. The elevation of Two Medicine is 5,164 feet, which is over 600 feet higher than at Saint Mary, yet the temperature is actually almost a full degree warmer.

The trees have fully leafed out, changing the view substantially from when there was snow on the ground and the tree branches were bare.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

This is the promised picture of Jackson. Although Wyoming is often pictured as flat desert land, this clearly shows that it has mountains. They can be seen in the distance. The mountains are still part of the Rockies. For that matter, most of Yellowstone National Park, which is a mountainous park, is in Wyoming.

I hope you enjoy these pictures. Except for Jackson Hole, these are much more nature-oriented than the set I shared yesterday, of the cities of Montana.
