RUNNING EAGLE FALLS IN CENTENNIAL AUTUMN

The year 2010 was the centennial year of Glacier National Park. Running Eagle, "Trick", Falls is famous for being a two in one waterfall, the lower falls coming out of a hole in the cliff, and the upper falls spilling over the top. Normally, both falls are active only during the spring and early summer. Autumn 2010 had exceptional rain and snow providing enough water for a two-in-one in late September. I compared this scene to Eden, the tranquil garden of the book of Genesis!
