another picture of Glacier
National Park, seen from the summit
of the Big Mountain Ski Resort. As these photography conditions
don't happen every day (inversions happen for about 2 weeks or
so each year in NW Montana), I took lots of pictures of this
To give some
perspective, the tallest mountain in this picture is Mt. Jackson,
which is just a tad over 10,000 feet in height and is located
near the left edge of this picture. The elevation I took this
picture at is about 7000 feet. The cloud line this day was
at about 5200 feet or so.
What is so
neat about these inversions is that the smaller mountains often
times just have the very top of their peaks in the sunlight -
and sort of form "mountain islands" in a vast sea of clouds.
