St. Mary Falls in Glacier National Park. We got there at just the right moment–as the sun peaked above the mountains and produced this amazing rainbow.
Lower Bertha Falls in Waterton National Park–probably the most technically difficult climb and tripod set-up required by any of the falls I photographed on this trip. We had to do quite a bit of bushwacking to get to this amazing view of the falls. And we didn’t have a lot of spare room to place the tripod–one false move and oops! my camera would have tumbled down the mountain along with the water.
View of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with the 300ft Lower Falls visible at the end of the canyon.
This is the “reverse” view of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, in this case looking from the very brink of the Lower Falls down into the canyon below.
These cascades were near Blakiston Falls in Waterton National Park, but not the falls themselves.
Redrock Falls in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park
Somehow these falls weren’t worthy enough for a name, but we really liked it anyway. Taken above St. Mary Falls in Glacier National Park
Another set of unnamed cascades above St. Mary Falls in Glacier National Park.
Lewis Falls near the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
Here’s the first gallery from our recent Western trip. This is a (teeny tiny) sample of all the tumbling waterfalls and cascades we observed as we explored the spine of the Rocky Mountains. It would be an understatement to say we saw “a lot” of waterfalls. I must admit that I was growing weary of setting up my tripod in precarious canyons to try to get that perfect waterfall shot; I was certain I was going to lose at least my tripod on these little excursions, if not my camera as well. Fortunately, we all returned intact!
I have plenty more and will perhaps post another waterfall gallery once I finish all my edits. Whew!
