Our safari in August of 2016 was
amazing, not only did we have far more wildlife encounters than I thought we
would have, but the landscapes and wildflowers were breathtaking. Each day
we travel to different sections of the park - the Polebridge Road to Bowman
Lake, Going-to-the-Sun Highway, the Many Glacier area, Lake McDonald and the
Flathead River. It seemed like everyday we had every kind of weather -
sprinkles, cloudy to the ground, blue skies, etc. We encountered the park's
famous Rocky Mountain Goats, grizzly bears, white-tailed does, fawns, and bucks
- as well as black bears and numerous bird species, like Cedar Waxwings.
The summer traffic was steady, but manageable - kind of like Yellowstone traffic
without the bison jams. Come expecting to shoot a lot of images.
We meet in Columbia Falls, Montana just outside the southwest entrance to
Glacier, just north of Kalispell on Sunday night, August 13. I
can take three photographers with me, in my truck, for those that book early
