Well after the last storm I think Mother Nature is now serious about summer. The temps are in the 70’s with frost in the morning, typical for this time of year. I spent a couple days shooting the west side of the park, near Pole Bride and brought home some decent images.
As of today, there is no set date for the Sun Road Opener, it’s “nip and tuck” according to the Park Service. Last weeks snow dumped 2 feet of fresh, heavy spring snow that now has to be removed. This obviously sets back, again the opener, it was tentatively set for June 14.
The days are long now with the solstice just around the corner (full moon Wednesday night!). My shooting days start with getting out of bed at 3:30 to make it to my destination by 5 am. The light is just right, on sunny days to shoot from about 5:15 until about 6:30 or until the light gets too “hot.” Some cloud cover is expected this week, so that will help things.
The wild flowers on the east side are as beautiful as I’ve ever seen them, just an outstanding year for flowers, lets hope it continues as things will be simply spectacular on Logan pass by August, I cant wait!
