Glacier National Park Day 4

On day 4 I made my way up to Many Glacier and secured a campsite. Then I spent the rest of the day at Two Medicine. I took the ferry across the lake and hiked up into Upper Two Medicine Lake.

Sometimes I believe the park has a mind of its own. As if it were challenging me, making me pay a penance for taking away the photos of its rich sights. Sometimes the park wins. Upper Two Medicine was one of several occasions where I could just not overcome the challenge of the weather and lighting conditions to create the photos that I desired. This can be especially frustrating after one has spent so much time and effort to reach a photo site, hiking for hours, stomping through mud and climbing up hundreds of feet. I learned that sometimes its best just to take a deep breath, and accept it.

We are only human, and Glacier is a beautiful reminder of just how human we are.
