We saw plenty of wildlife on our recent trip to Glacier. Unfortunately they did not sit still and pose. A better wildlife photographer than I would spend all day in a blind, camera on tripod, waiting. Unfortunately, my tripod broke in transit and I didn't have the time needed to patiently wait.
Our most exciting encounter was with this bull moose. It was in the grass near the dock when we got off the boat in the Many Glacier area. Considered more dangerous than a grizzly, he was none too happy to see us.
Less threatening was this marmot we saw along the trail on our way back to the lodge.
Around Logan Pass, the goats ignored us, sharing the trails with the human hikers.
A group of rams ran across the trail and quickly moved away from human contact but still close enough for a shot of the impressive horns on this guy.
We just caught a glimpse of this bear from the bus. It is barely good enough to see that it has the concave shaped face of a grizzly rather than the convex profile of a black bear. While I wish it had been out in the open for a better shot I was glad I was in the bus rather than in the woods, up close and personal!
