Fall Colors on Chief Mountain
in Glacier National Park
Fall Colors highlight the beauty of Glacier National Park. We visited Chief Mountain on the east side of the park and lucked out by encountering some of the magnificent golds of the Montana Fall colors.

Elk are amazing animals, so large and yet so graceful. If you have a chance to visit Glacier Park during the end of Sept., make plans to be around Many Glacier and Chief Mountain for the elk rut. A majestic view of bulls challanging each other for their prize cows.
