Gorge-ous

    Newer Older

    Glacier National Park's Avalanche Gorge from an atypical vantage point.

    Everyone has to take the money shot from the bridge along the Trail of the Cedars Bridge, (its in the fine print if you read your admission receipt) but if you hike up the creek a bit, you'll find some amazingly abstract compositions.

    I loved how the moss really contrasted and popped with the red rock, and the rushing water, which is made blue by the glacial sentiments that come from the Speery Glacier a couple of miles upstream at Avalanche Lake.

    I was there during the park's Centennial Celebration two years ago -- my only regret is I didn't get to stay longer.

      This is exactly as your title says - gorgeous. Worth the hike off the beaten track.

      Inspiring. This is as beautiful as some of the best Slot Canyon imagery in it's own unique way. The cool blue tones are wonderful.
