Glacier Sign

The sun came out on Monday and Tuesday and so we went off to Glacier National Park in search of stuff to photograph.

Outside of Glacier:

This is the valley just outside of Glacier National Park looking at the Rocky Mountains.

Flathead Valley 2

We don’t all live in tipis, but there are tipis in the area.

Here’s a frozen waterfall:

Glacier National Park:

Steam is coming off the lake in the foreground—it was about 5 below zero when this was taken.

This is the road along the lake.

Lake M road

The road is kept open for about 8 miles along the lake to the lodge. The closed road is then used by cross-country skiers.

The Lodge

The totem pole at the lodge is shown below. The Kootenai, for whom this is a sacred area which is important in their creation stories, never made totem poles.  See: National Parks and Indians: Glacier National Park   for more about the local Indians.

Outside the Park:

The Isaac Walton Inn is a railroad stop outside of the park and has a Great Northern Railway theme.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
