A Perfect Morning at Glacier National Park

I'm back in Montana for a few days!


We were graciously invited by Jack Horner up to northern Montana to join him on a dinosaur dig, My 7-year-old son (and the 7-year-old in me) is excited as can be by this once in a lifetime experience. We are not sure yet, but we think there is a special kind of Tyrannosaurus Rex that has been uncovered near Rudyard, Montana. Jack has his dig team out there, so we are going to camp out with them for a while and help with the dig... we are mega excited.


For a few nights before the dig, I took the family unit here to nearby Glacier National Park. We stayed at the Many Glacier Inn, which is this 1930's Swiss-style chalet on a beautiful lake looking out at Mount Grinnell and several glaciers.


I woke up early in the morning to get this shot, while the rest of my family and the inn was still asleep. As usual, I had my ipod on full blast while I took in the scene and snapped away.


If you look at the large size, down at the bottom, you can see all the rocks through the crystal-clear glacial lake.



I have a tutorial at that you might enjoy...
