13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Moon Over Heaven's Peak

This photo was taken along the Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier National Park in late June. I had been traveling all day and just managed to get up higher on Logan Pass for sunset. At first very little seemed to be happening with the sky and I had nearly given up. Then the colors revealed themselves out of nowhere! This was one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen and seeing it in such an overwhelmingly beautiful place was truly incredible.
