Well, it sure has been a long time since I last updated this blog. This year has been extremely busy for me, with being in school full time, a five-week tour with my band, an extended visit back home in Virginia, and a healthy dose of summer shooting out west.
Earlier in the month, I spent about ten days in Montana’s insanely beautiful Glacier National Park. It was my first visit to the park, and I was thoroughly excited and impressed by the tall, rugged, and beautiful peaks, beautiful alpine meadows, deep glacier-cut valleys, beautiful deep-blue lakes, and the (tiny) glaciers themselves. On top of that, the summer thunderstorm cycle was in full effect, providing beautiful and dramatic light most evenings.
I had the excitement of seeing dozens of Mountain Goats and Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, and I even got to see a Wolverine! Despite the two million visitors-per-year that the park sees, wildlife seemed to flourish and just about any area away from Going-to-the-sun road and Logan Pass seemed to be just as pristine and wild as anywhere in the mountains.
And, like I said, good light was plentiful. It was a great trip, and I will certainly return in years to come.
