Montana in Five Days: Waterfalls!

Waterfalls, waterfalls, WATERFALLS!  I fricking love waterfalls.  Montana was a dreamscape in this respect.  Come, I’ll show you.

We started off with by far the mightiest falls of the trip, the Upper Falls of the canyon:

Fairy Falls, also in Yellowstone, is in the midst of the destruction caused by the Year of Fire, 1988:

Glacier National Park also had a lot to offer.  The water of Macdonald Creek was so blue that I couldn’t resist:

In a couple million years, I’ll come back and hike Avalanche Creek slot canyon!

And that concludes the segment on waterfalls, not that a photo can truly capture their watery glory!

I’ve done my best here with a Sony Cybershot point-and-shoot, but there is no comparison to seeing the real thing.

Until next time,

Heather
