These glacier lilies (Erythronium grandiflorum) were so abundant and beautiful near Haystack Butte on the Highline Trail that I didn’t mind kneeling in the mud to capture these shots. The Highline Trail begins at Logan Pass, the highest point on Going-to-The-Sun Road and traverses the mountainside on its 7.6 mi (12 km) journey down to Granite Park Chalet. It provides continual spectacular, sweeping panorama views of the surrounding mountains.
Waterton – Glacier International Peace Park straddles the USA – Canadian border at Montana, USA, and Alberta, Canada, and is a World Heritage Site. Glacier National Park features stunning turquoise glacial lakes and sculpted mountain peaks of unique magenta, blue, green and yellow rock. The valleys and mountain slopes are abundant with wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush, Glacier Lily, Beargrass and Monkeyflower. The area also supports many large animals such as grizzly bears, moose, bighorn sheep, elk, mountain goats and wolves.
