Early in october 2003, the aspen in Glacier National Park were in full "bloom". There was some frost in the morning, but the days were still pleasently warm.
The "Going-to-the-Sun Road" crosses the park roughly east/west, winding over to the 2025m/6646ft high Logan Pass. It was finished 1932, after 11 years of work. And that's about all the road there is inside the park, 50 miles of tarmac. This compares quite positively to 700 miles of hiking trails.
This image I took on the western side of the Logan Pass, after the road made its one but big switchback.

Autumn is the crop harvesting time for photographers. :) You did this job ideally! Yellow and green colour perfusion is dreamlike!

Very beautiful scenery.

Cool photo from this beautiful park, Adrian. The colors of the autumnal foliage are at their most beautiful, particularly in combination with the vivid sunlight. The road makes a fine compositional diagonal and the red car is just about ideally placed to give a delightful extra interest. Good job with the precise GPS coordinates, too, the map very well illustrates the location "just after the switchback". Nice work.

Nice to see this wonderful park in fall ! I saw it last June in "full bloom" with its spring colors. I love the red car travelling the park. Good picture.

Well Adrian I found this interesting perspective in your gallery. Very nice photo showing color and design and the contrasting red car. Very well done!

This shot is expertly framed and transforms what could have been a mundane scene (albeit full of beautiful aspens) into a great composition. The alternating tones of yellow aspen leaves and green pines creates a handsome image. Good eye!
