Ended our adventure packed day with a leisurely dinner at Many Glaciers Lodge. All in all we saw mountain goats 🐐🐐🐐🐐, deer 🦌🦌, caribou, bison, foxes 🦊🦊, and bears. Caught a video of the grizzly, but no picture because just as I was about to take it the grizz headed straight toward us and the ranger started yelling for everyone to get inside their cars. He finally switched directions when he was only 30 feet in front of us 😱😱😱
Phieng made it in to a number of my photos on this trip. Here is one from an evening hike along the Swiftcurrent Nature Trail.
OK! First, this lake is filled with water from glaciers and is freeeeeeezing! These babes are literally everything and I love them so freaking much! ⠀
Second, in case you missed ALLLLL my awkwardness during my Live (no I didn’t save it I could NOT handle the humiliation for 24 more hours 😂) Oct 4-7 I will be joining @mooseandbearphotography
to host the Dust + Light Workshop near Breckenridge, CO. and we are so freaking pumped! ⠀
The deets: This is for rad lady photogs (sorry gents) who are just starting in their business or are looking to create more genuine connections with their couples OR just want to come hang, shoot, dance, and drink in a hot tub with us 🍷🍹 4 days, 3 smoking hot portfolio building shoots (in-home, engagement, + elopement), tons of education, editing, and making bomb ass photog friends (this is where we dance and have hot tub drinking parties)!!!! STOKE LEVEL 10 🙌🏼 Click the link in the bio for all the specifics!⠀
P.S. these babes tangled in a freezing lake might be joining us 😉😏⠀

The Many Glacier area is a very beautiful part of the park. Upon our inevitable return, we look forward to exploring this eastern side further including Grinnell Glacier and the Two Medicine area. For now, we continue to make our way West and North but first we’re Going to the Sun!! 🏔🌞🏔 #glaciernationalpark #manyglacier #manyglacierhotel #grinnellpoint
I first heard of the #ptarmigantunnel
seven years ago. We had neither the time or the energy back then to climb 2500 feet to stroll through a tunnel at the top of a cliff. We didn't really have time this trip either, but we did it anyway after finding out during a brief moment of internet access that the tunnel doors opened early. Two hours driving each way, six hours of hiking, and a dinner of emergency pancakes in the dark were all an experience, for sure. But the views! And as 10 mile hikes with that much elevation go, it was surprisingly gradual, even the intimidating looking but not actually that bad switch backs at the top #manyglacier
Sometimes, in still images, the elements of a scene are so grand that it is hard to capture the feel of its scale. You can only capture a fraction of it. I felt that here at Many Glacier in Glacier National Park. Because of the cold, snowy winter, the spring runoff was a mighty force. I can still hear and feel it's strength and energy. It was a force that reminds me that there is something bigger than myself. I love moments like this that really give life a needed change of perspective. Nature will do this, she is a great teacher. You only have to stand quietly in her presence and you simply know.
Though, I wasn't able to give this scene the extra depth that I wanted, I was able to include the man standing on the rocks on the other side of the river. This gives the viewer a better sense of scale.
On a side note, I went to the other side minutes later not far from where this man was standing to capture some different angles, but was totally spooked by a young grizzly that came along the trail. It's amazing, perspectives can change quickly. It was a wrap. Have a great weekend! 😊 #montana #manyglacier #glaciernationalpark #nationalpark #visitmontana #swiftcurrent #americaisbeautiful #beautifulplanet #arteobjetiva #naturelovers #natgeotravel #nature_brilliance #canonusa #earth_shotz #bns_landscape #rsa_rural #photo_hitchhiker #marvelshots #amazing_shots #bestnatureshot
We all had an absolute BLAST in Glacier National Park. If you’re considering going...do it! If you’ve never heard of it: look it up, then DO IT! This was at Many Glacier. We saw brown bear, grizzly bear, deer, moose, coyote, golden eagles and a whole slew more of wildlife. Probably our most memorable location to date!
... happy FriYAY!! 🙆🏼♀️ May all of your weekend beverages come in reusable glasses sans single-use plastic straws 🥂🍻
... unless you've been ignoring *all* media, you probably know that plastic straws are bad, bad, bad for turtles, birds and other sealife. Maybe you recall hearing that China increased their requirements for buying our recyclable materials... which essentially means recycling is really not happening, even when we think/hope it is. Put these pieces together and drinks in plastic solo cups with straws (or anything similar with single-use plastics) are headed to the landfill, beach or ocean (especially if you fail to #binit
properly). At the rate we are going, there *will* be more plastic in the ocean than sealife in the not so distant future. ...the question is: are you adding to the problem? .
