We had an amazing time in Glacier National Park and Bill took tons of wonderful photos that I could not wait to share. Today is the last of the photos for this trip! The favorite part of the trip for me was watching the bear take a dip in the river. Amazing!
Now here's Bill!
Thanks Linda! The flowers in the park were definitely past their prime, but I managed to find a few bog gentian flowers that were showing good colors.
Fireweed were blooming at Big Bend turn-out. Mount Oberlin is in the background.
One of the prettiest views is Sunrift Gorge. It is a small stream that cuts straight through the rock. Hikers sometimes walk in the stream as a shortcut to get to the backcountry in the distance.
As we returned to our campsite at Many Glacier campground, we came upon a bear jam. (A bear jam is when bunches of tourists abandon their cars to get a glimpse of a bear).
This grizzly bear had been feasting on berries and was ready to go for a swim. "You coming?"
"C'mon in, the water's fine!"
The bear soaked in the water for about 10 minutes and had a good scratch or two before climbing up the bank and resuming it's feast of berries.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my photos and I hope you are having a fun summer.
