Glacier National Park -West sideWednesday, October 13, 2010 by Steve Hill

First Snow, Avalanche Creek

These mountains on the west side of Glacier National Park are over 9000 to 10,000 feet the one directly above me had its first dusting of snow last night. The rivers and creeks run crystal clear, with a slight celadon tint from glacial melt. This particular spot is frequented by Grizzly bears, mountain lions (cougar), mountain goats and one plein air painter . . . that would be me, today.

I always pay special attention to details beyond the landscape when I work at these places, with a keen eye for movement, and ears tuned for growly sounds that don't belong to the river. It's a little like sleeping with one eye open and certainly adds a new sense of urgency to the task at hand.
