Since y'all don't seem to mind, and a few have asked for more, here are a few more pictures from Glacier.

A closer view of Clement's Mtn with McDonald Creek in the foreground.

McDonald Creek cuts through granite and other mountain stone as it rushes down the hillside...

...briefly resting in deep green pools before continuing it's frosty journey. Yes, that water is cold - about 30 degrees in these standing pools.

And with those mesmerizing pools at your feet, you look through the trees...

There's no doubt that you're in a magical place.

Then, when we got to the other side and Kintla Lake, the magic didn't stop for, as the sun began to slide down the other side of the Big Sky, the water began to turn to liquid silver and gold...

And, then, when you thought it couldn't get any better than this, a blessing arrives in the most sacred form found in my Native heritage ....

Like I said, y'all, when I got back to civilization, I *did* feel bad for forgetting to do as I'd said I would. But, in my life, *meat space* comes first.
Not that I don't love ya.
Who else lets, nay volunteers for, me to snark at them by posting captions for my plethora of pictures and then submitting to my Judgement afterward?
heh
Hope you enjoyed the pix!

Oh my. Yes, those streams are liquid ice -- with fish living in them. Yummy tasty trout. Or there used to be. Thank you again, you're too good to me.

There she goes again, flaunting her unearned mountainous terrain privilege.

We need to find a way to redistribute all that unequal altitude so that states like the People's Republik of Maryland can be raised far enough above sea level to escape the coming flooding when the polar ice caps melt due to global hotcoldwetdry.

Been off the grid for a while due to surgery. Couldn't have asked for a nicer reentry subject. Thanks!

Glad you're back!

Sayyyyy.... you probably didn't need to spend a whole lot of money while you were laid up. How about a contribution to the DNC? We have a critical fundraising deadline pretty much every day and all this money doesn't raise itself, you know!

Unearned my ass!! I followed Uncle Sams' Misguided Children around this country for over 25 years for this.
And I intend to flaunt it every chance I get.
