Fiery sunrise light erupts through a break in the clouds over the peaks of Glacier, Montana. Woke up that morning around 4 am and started driving on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. (the only road that crosses Glacier National Park, going over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass) The two lane Going-to-the-Sun Road is quite narrow and winding, especially west of Logan Pass. As we started ascending from St Mary's lake, visibility decreased due to thick fog. I was tagging along with Harsha Jayawardena & he was driving 5 mph and we still couldn't see the road/vehicle just a few feet ahead of us. That was a memorable experience which needed to be over soon. One small mistake and you are taking a pass to heaven or hell (Thanks Harsha for letting me tag along) Anyhooo this scene unfolded in front of us when we had no other options since Mt Reynolds and Clements were covered in fog. Ended up shooting this scene by the roadside...
