We visited Glacier N.P. a couple of weeks ago. I am still sorting and editing the photos, but I thought I would share a few. I will try to add some more shots to the thread when I finish with the editing.

Thank you.

 

Here is a shot from a close grizzly encounter we had. It's not the best shot of a grizzly I have ever taken, but the experience was unique. We were hiking a trail, and I walked upon the bear without either of us seeing each other. I was within 10 yards (my wife was several paces behind me) when I saw a light brown back in the high grass just off the trail, and initially thought it was a mule deer (we'd been seeing quite a few very close in the area). It raised it's head then, which gave me quite an adrenaline jolt. I kept calm, and slowly backed away, and the grizzly went back to digging for food. I was probably 60-75 yards away when I took this shot.

Beautiful photos, Scott. I really like #5 in your first set. Heh, your grizzly encounter had my heart beating a bit. I can't imagine how you felt after he went back to eating.

Thanks, Richard. That shot #5 is one of my favorites, too. Last night I placed an order for a 24x16 metallic print of that one -- Meridian Pro had a sale on metallic prints that ended last night, and I have always wanted to try one.

 

As for the grizzly bear encounter, it was quite an experience. I was quite pleased with how calm I kept. Luckily the bear was more interested in digging for food than in us. It looked like a younger adult, which can be the most unpredictable type, so we were pretty fortunate. We had to wait about 10-15 minutes for the bear to leave the trail before we could continue our hike.

 

Here is a shot similar to #5 from the first set, but of a different lake and at more of a wide angle. The first one was of Swiftcurrent Lake, which our hotel -- the historic Many Glacier Hotel -- was on. This one was from nearby Josephine Lake.

Here is a shot of the Many Glacier Hotel from the parking area, to give you an idea of the setting. The hotel is the only facility on the lake, so it's a very tranquil setting. We stayed there four nights before moving to the west side of the park for three nights.
