My last post I said "Tetons or Bust", about both!


I went to the Tetons and it was a bust. Poop. Weather was pretty's odd, everytime I look over my shoulder there's always a big dark cloud...hrm, I dunno! LOL


So since Teton NP was a bust I headed north into East Glacier National Park to photography St. Mary Lake and many other things...I ended up spending 3 days. Here's a capture from late morning on the second day. The sunrise was boring so I waited about two hours for the sun to light up the valley and lake...I took about 35-40 shots over about 90 minutes as the clouds kept shifting and changing how the light fell across the scene. This one was my favorite...some light in the foreground and across the glacier carved peaks.


After being off the "grid", so to speak, the last few days (no cell phone, no Internet) I started getting a bit jittery...but nothing a little Starbucks couldnt cure this morning after nearly a WEEK without it. Can you believe that?? Well of course I did brew my own java each morning, MoHo style, but coffee just tastes better when someone else makes it...and then charges you $3 for it ;)


Question: Is there a rapid cure for mosquito bites? A rogue blood sucker got into the MoHo one night and as I slept proceeded to bit my uncovered shoulder about 30 times. IT FREAKIN ITCHES!!
