Saturday night we received a bit of rain and awoke to smoke-free skies.  Sunday afternoon we took a drive to through Glacier Park.


Watching the storm clouds roll-in on Avalanche Creek…


Clouds rolling across the valley on Going-to-the-Sun Road…

We ended up enjoying our day in the rain. Normally, we would have been a bit bummed to spend the day in the rain but with the wildland fires and evacuations going on, smokey suffocating skies and how badly we need the rain this year, it really was a great day.  Kind of funny how a different perspective on things can change an attitude.  Skies have been without smoke all week, even though we still have the majority of the fires burning and we are suppose to be getting more rain, maybe even some snow in higher elevations throughout the weekend.  🙂

  5. These were fantastic. I haven’t been on the Going to the Sun road in years but that shot brought back a lot of memories. – Good to hear you had rain in your area. Same here which really helped with some of the fires still burning. Loved the shot of the bear too.
