Re: 2021 summer trip questions

If the access from the east side does open up this summer (and it looks like that's still a big "if").... I've never been to Morningstar Lake from the Cut Bank trailhead, but lots of good reviews of that. It would be a good site to consider for a shorter hike in -- stay there for a couple nights an...

Re: 2021 summer trip questions

When, roughly are you planning on going Sean? Regarding I'm looking for easy-ish trips where she can see emerald colored lakes, wildflowers, and wildlife. Don't give up on Granite Park. Check during the evening and before 0800 MST to see what may have opened. Two nights there is way better than one ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

When I worked in the darkroom, I'd print and view, then print a little different and view, and repeat ad nauseum. I did the same thing with a pair of printers and digital images, but I got tired of keeping the nozzles clean and they died. Yeah, that's a good reason to not buy a printer---of any kin...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

The print of that sunset was disappointing. It just looked "flat" for lack of a better expression.
I guess sometimes images just don't work out as expected. Bummer.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

The purple-pink is a color you don't see in the Midwest. Money shot. Looks great. I'm a "hot sleeper." So I like it warm in the winter and have a hard time sleeping if I'm cold. I don't think I'd do well outdoors. Looked like you had it wired with the various layers. Jay 31 miles on the skis today....

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Thanks Angela!
Looks like I'll have to get that image printed tomorrow to see how it looks on paper.

I love that "human rotisserie mode" analogy!! :D
I woke up several times to find my Baffin Boot clad feet all twisted up in the sleeping bag! :mrgreen:
Cheers

Re: Firebrand Pass in winter

Any thoughts on a trip to this pass, via snowshoes or otherwise? I hiked over this pass many moons ago as part of a multiday trek and am curious if it is doable in winter (not when the winds are blowing!!). While I'm at it, are there any other winter routes to recommend on the south side of the par...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Wow! That photos is absolutely stunning Pete! You've got to start a 2021 "Snaps" page with that one. You are setting the bar quite high for yourself this year :) Thanks Carol. :D Maybe add this 4 image pano to the one above? This one was taken just 11 minutes before the one above. Light changes rap...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Ok, here's how I do a shrimp stir fry on a campfire :mrgreen: A few notes. And it was avocado oil not olive oil. I peeled and deveined the shrimp at home. I changed jackets. Didn't want fire sparks burning holes in my $300 Patagonia down jacket. 8) Splitting wood, I just barely hit my left index fin...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Here's the sunset last night(Jan 14) from the Apgar boat dock beach. This is a pano from the JPGs, not RAW files. Sharpness is "ok". I would expect a pano done from the RAW/PSD files might be better if printed. The only processing I did to this 4 image pano is cropping, a slight bit of haze removal,...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Hi Pete: Did you try to snag a reservation at Sperry this year, and if so, have you heard back yet if you landed one? I know you mentioned you hoped to snag a reservation since you were hoping to do Floral Park. -Craig Hi Craig😀 No Sperry. I think I'm too old and out of shape to do Floral Park. So ...
