Just got back from a couple day job up in Glacier working on an assignment for PBS…
Was up in the Many Glacier area these last couple days and just returned home for a brief break before heading out again.
Glacier looks spectacular this year and the rains and late season storms have brought an immense wildflower season, probably one of the best I’ve seen.
Logan Pass however is still blanketed in tons of snow and it may be a while before it’s finally gone. From about Lunch Creek up the snow is still melting away.
The Highway is open though and has been for about a week. Definitely worth the drive over right now.
I spent most of my time in Many Glacier area working with Ken Burns and his crew while they were getting some last minute pieces for their National Parks Documentary that will be out Fall of 2009.

If it’s anything like their previous films it should be rich in history outside the mainstream and visually stunning.
It sounded like they have captured some amazing footage and I am anxious to see the finished piece.
Now it’s back to editing photos before I head back up for a couple days for a workshop that I am assisting on for Popular Photography Magazine. Should be nice as our weather looks beautiful for the next week or so.

Glacier is really looking good this year and if you get a chance to make it up you won’t be disappointed. It’s also looking like it might be a banner year for the beargrass. We’ll see how it pans out.
