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.
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.
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.
