Bear Lake Road -- Alberta Falls

Alberta Falls is a short .6-mile walk from the Glacier Gorge Junction Trailhead. This is an easy hike and is excellent for kids. On this short early-morning walk, I say two separate herds of elk. One herd was only 2 cows and the other was a mixed group of about 12. Early in the day, you are liable to encounter elk almost anywhere in the park.

Photo Facts

This picture was taken on an overcast day to avoid the harsh light that causes dark shadows and burnt out highlights. The exposure was with a tripod and 1/8 of a second to create the "angle hair" effect of the water in the foreground.
