|Picture of fall colors that I enhanced slightly to look like a painting|
We got out one evening and ran around Dredge lake area, near the glacier, and caught just the tail end of the sunset. The fall colors were out and the sky was clear that day. Unfortunately I was too lazy to carry a tripod and so most images were not worth posting, but I got a few and thought to share them. Those that know the area remember that this used to be overrun with ATVs and they really tore it up, but now it is protected and the area is beginning to heal. The loops of trails now are utilized by walkers, joggers, and mountain bikers and with no loud engines one can here the birds and such. This area is across the main road, Back Loop Hwy, from the neighborhood we live in, thus giving us two areas within walking distance to enjoy the outdoors, yay!!

So last Sunday the weather was pretty good and Sarah and I headed up to Herbert Glacier. Its a smooth easy trail that is frequented by runners, bikers, and hikers. They have really done a lot of work in the last few years to this trail. We got to the end of the trail and continued up the side of the river and got some great views of the glacier. For my folks these shots of the glacier will be surprising just how far Herbert has receded.
|I call these Rose Fungus, some really look the part.|
|As we headed up the trail, the sun came out, this is steam rolling off the forest, kinda cool|
|First view of Herbert and the river delta at the terminal moraine|
|The glacier is split in half now by this small mountain and this shot is of the division.|
|This the right hand side, much smaller and less melt off, river coming from left side.|
|Coming around the corner to the left side, notice the dark line in the ice|
|Upon closer inspection, one can really see how a glacier moves rock. Amazing|
|Looking up to the slopes for goats, found some, but too far for photos|
