We moved to East Glacier so that we are closer to paradise on Earth. Our first three day weekend took us to Old man lake. We were lucky to get two nights at this campsite now - it is not possible in the high season.
Hiked in 6 miles, the trail wrapped around the Rising wolf mountain to start, than crossed Dry Fork and led us gradually up to a nice, unexpected waterfall...
After we set up a camp, we walked up towards Pitamakan Pass, only about half way to get a better view of the sunset. from there, I tried to get my first time lapse, and I think it turned out quite good, of course it should be longer.
I just couldn't wait any longer to take some sunset photos...
There was a grizzly mama with two cubs on the right side of the lake, too bad I didn't bring my zoom lens.
The next day we hiked to the top of Pitamakan Pass, to get a view of Pitamakan lakes, and also to see the other side... The sky was blue, so were the lakes, but it was incredibly windy.
Luckily, that night we didn't have the rain fly on. I was half asleep when Aaron woke me up that the sky is flickering. I quickly set up a tripod and snapped a photo of the sky, and sure enough, it was purple!
We got to see some flickering green northern lights as well, but not very strong. I really need a lot more practice on my night photography skills, as you can see...
And some more photos from the two days of awesomeness
