Fine Art Friday- Jammin’- Glacier National Park, Montana

Today’s image comes from one of my all time favorite spots, in one of the coolest modes of transportation.  Can you guess where I photographed this lovely azure sky?

1. On this day trip, I needed my passport.
2. In July, there is still snow on parts of the 48 mile main road through this National Park (which just celebrated its 100th birthday.)
3. This image was taken from something built in the 1930’s- and it still runs today.
4.  The sky gets a lot of press in this part of the world.

Post your guesses and I’ll post the reveal by the end of the day.

Happy Friday the 13th (the 2nd out of 3 this year!)
Excellent guesses!  And the answer is…

Red Jammer, Glacier National Park, Montana, 2010

The view is from the seat of a famous Red Jammer, the cool buses that operate in Glacier NP and Waterton Lakes NP (just over the Canadian border).  Each 25 foot long bus cozily seats 17 and the canvas top can be rolled back (quite a lengthy process) to reveal this framework on the roof line. I took this on a chilly August day during a trip with my mom, which included traveling on the famous Going to the Sun Road and crossing into Canada for high tea at the famous Prince of Wales Hotel.  Everyone was huddled under blankets but happy to be cruising the park under a gorgeous sky.  It’s hard to explain, but you can’t stop staring at the sky in Montana- it feels twice as big as anywhere else that I have visited.   I attended photography school in Montana, and I’d highly recommend a trip to Missoula, Flathead Lake, and Glacier National Park if you are looking for a great adventure in a pristine, jaw-dropping spot. Here are a few snaps:
