Mt. Cannon

When a view like this stops you... | I pulled over at one of the open areas where another set of mountains came into view while driving on the windy Going-To-The-Sun Road. I saw a field of Beargrass unfolding before my eyes. On the other side of the valley the immediately recognizable Mt. Oberlin and the north cliff end of Mt. Cannon sat very prominently. The peaks of Clements Mountain and Mt. Cannon behind them were still shrouded in the persistent rain clouds. The snowfield-fed Bird Woman Falls soon caught my eye, as many other waterfalls in this park did. I was told that this particular falls usually ceases flowing after summer, and I was glad that I saw it. Now that I was on the west side of Logan Pass, the astonishingly majestic Mt. Gould and the Garden Wall were out of sight and I’d be shortly arriving at the Loop, from which I was planning to hike up to Swiftcurrent Mountain. I was supposed to see all of this from a lot higher ground.

Stars rose over Heavens | The night came at the Loop. I was looking for an open area where I could see the gorgeous Milky Way clearly, and the Loop had to do it. Our galaxy rose between Mt. Cannon (on the left) and Heavens Peak, seemingly appropriate with the stars in the sky. I didn’t know if the light pollution was coming from the towns adjacent to the Glacier Park International Airport in the south of the park, but it got illuminated brighter by the clouds hanging just over the mountains. It was definitely a chilly night and I had to bundle up. But it was where I wanted to be.
