From Avalanche to Rising Sun

I knew the drive back from Avalanche Lakes was going to be longer than the two hour drive there.  I could break it up with a few stops along the way where there were photo opportunities.  The first was at the entrance to the tunnel.   
This stop was a 20 minute construction delay just before Logan Pass.  We waited while traffic came from the other direction.  Shortly after this delay, we had another delay.  A bear cub ran down the hillside onto the road, stopped and just looked around.  It sat for a few seconds then got up and carried on down the hill on the other side of the road.  I thought it was probably following Mom and maybe they were the ones that caused the portion of the Highline Trail to be closed.
Getting into the St Mary area and closer to the Rising Sun, I just had to stop and enjoy this vista.  
St. Mary Lake
Where I was spending my last night!
I checked in, unpacked, cleaned up, shopped then headed for dinner and a glass of wine.  It was a long day and I knew I had another long one ahead of me, so called it a day early and was out like a light!  I didn't even relive my day which I normally do!  I did have sweet dreams though!
