Montana, as with much of the northwest has had a busy forest fire season. The haze and light smoke was very noticeable in our visit to Glacier National Park. The free range cows didn’t seem to mind.
Most of the scenes were somewhat obscured with haze, but still visually stunning.
The hike to St Mary’s Waterfalls was worth the effort.
The smoke provided some unusual patterns in the otherwise clear skies.
Glacier is losing it’s namesakes at a rapid pace. We saw very little, mostly because they are so high up with the haze what is left was blocked from view.
The ‘Going to the Sun’ Road is a spectacular drive.
Lake McDonald offers tours – we skipped that option.
