This morning we visited the western part of The Glacier National Park in Montana. It was pretty cold (about 8°C) and there were scattered showers all morning. However, the scenery was still great and we never actually got wet. The rain always seemed to hold off whenever we wanted to get out of the car to look around or take photos.
The locals probably thought we were pretty crazy as they were all dressed warmly while Vyv and I were wearing shorts. After the cold Kiwi winter this didn't really feel that cold to me.
Minutes after the above photo was taken the clouds rolled in and completely obscured the background. You couldn't see a thing. We started heading back south and the weather improved. There were fire fighters fighting a large fire over the mountain range to the right of the photo and we hoped that the rain, which was a nuisance to us, was of help to them. They have been working hard at controlling the fires for some time.
Here's a few photos to give you an idea of the area. The clouds covered a lot of the higher peaks but the views were still pretty amazing.
The colour of the water varies at different locations but it is always incredibly clear...
