And then there was blue hour. Soon after the sun sets and all that vibrant warm colors start to fade away, a completely new mood sets in, of which many call blue hour. Typically when the sun is far below the horizon, indirect sunlight explodes in hues of blue. If you’re looking for very cool tones then this is your time moment. In fact, only a couple of minutes is all you got. Blue hour usually doesn’t stick around for long. Blue wavelengths are significantly shorter than of red wavelengths, the reason why it darks so quickly once you lose sight of the sun. If you’re not quick, it can definitely pass you by but it’s not always a bad thing. What happens when the sun is gone? Stars come out.
Our first stop heading into Glacier was this lake that I had come across while researching this destination, Lake McDonald. I saw plenty of photos of this place, in all different seasons and none of them came short of breath-taking so it was definitely a must. I didn’t know what to expect getting to this place, which is all the reason for me becoming completely speechless when I turned the corner from the parking lot and saw this expansive view of the lake. The water was clear as glass and super calm. The sky was blue with clouds full of character. It was going to be one hell of a sunset, this we knew.

To me, nothing says "adventure" like a trip through the mountains and there are few things that I anticipate and enjoy more than standing in the presence of them. Something about them have always had a way of taking my breath away and making me feel both powerful and insignificant at the same time. It's a crazy feeling, one that I find incredibly hard to find words for.
We took a trip into Glacier National Park, knowing it was winter and that most of the park would be closed but little did we know that even the outer edges of the park still top the worlds most beautiful sceneries. We shot sunrise, mid day and sunset every day of our five day itinerary and while it was very cold, and a non stop schedule, it was one of my favorite trips to date. We toured through icy roads, hiked miles through bear country and had the most epic snowball fight the world has ever known. Ever.
We came and we conquered. And who knew that frozen Sour Patch Kids could be so good?
