This last summer/fall my husband and I took a little hike on Ptarmigan Trail in Glacier National Park…IMG_2104

It was a gorgeous, blue skied day with the autumn leaves just starting to change…IMG_1920

We spotted these little ptarmigan cross the trail in front of us…IMG_2128-Edit IMG_2132-Edit IMG_2133-Edit IMG_2137-Edit IMG_2140-Edit

  1. what wonderful scenery you have around you. Not to sure if I would have wanted to be too close to the bear but it is a great shot. Loved al the bird shots and wondered if you saw this bird in the wintertime when it snowed?

    That is a beautiful place but don’t think I’d want that bear looking at me like that with wide open space between us–you must be very brave . . . or used to being around bears.
