I have a feeling this is the first of several photos of this island. It's one of those must-take pictures when you come to Glacier National Park. I'll be in a photo workshop here for the next few days and I imagine this will be one of the stopping points.
We shared the chilly east 17 miles of the Going to the Sun Road with a few hearty souls. Herds of elk moved through the meadows. The stags bugling was an eerie sound in the stillness. Deer leapt across the road, making me glad that Breland is such a cautious driver. Fall colors surrounded us. I hope those colors will peak in the next few days. The clouds covered the mountains, rising for just a few moments.
It's snowing very heavily on the mountains right now and the scene may look very different tomorrow.
