Wild Goose Island

I return to this iconic overlook in Glacier Park and try again.  Previously (2001), the weather compromised the view, tonight it is perfectly clear and the traffic over Logan Pass nonexistent.  The pink smudge to the left is not a cloud, it is the core of the Milky Way, moving its way across the sky on a beautifully clear August night.

View full size.
