This autumn trip to Montana's Glacier National Park easily ranks up there with some of my favorite journeys. From summer visits, I had seen some nice stands of aspen in the eastern side of the park and thought they might produce good fall color. What I didn't expect was what I found west of Logan Pass. In the upper McDonald valley and along the Going-to-the-Sun-Road below the Garden Wall birch, cottonwood and a variety of shrubs put on a very colorful show. I was able to compose many images of mountains and rivers with nice surrounding autumn foliage.
This particular image features a magnificent paper birch with large curving branches surrounded by autumn leaves.
