Very nice!

Looks like you were favouring the 15--probably the more comfortable one to wear around your neck!
Thanks! I did shoot with the 15 more than the zoom, but I actually took 80% of my shots on the trip with the kit 18-55. Partly becuase of the comfort, but also because that is a great range on the trail. I was very happy with that lens as well- just didn't mention it since the thread was partly focused on renting. Here are couple of my favorites with the kit:

Constructive criticism - how about great shots!! It looks like someone was staying at Many Glacier hotel and hiking to Iceberg Lake! Thanks for sharing the photos. I was on the fence about the 21mm and the 15mm and this was exactly the trip that was the center of the dilemma. Looks like the 15mm worked out great for you! I was noticing you were doing a great job of including the foreground in your shots. I find myself on my knees when doing wide-angle work. Nice shots. I have the 60-250mm arriving today.
I did stay at Many Glacier and did hike to Iceberg Lake. The 15 was great there, but where it was really perfect was on the Highline Trail. I highly recommend you check that out. Some great shots and one of the nicest hikes I've ever been on.

Enjoy your trip!

I was wondering where I would go for a Sunday drive this week. Maybe we'll go there. BTW, I'm not kidding - Glacier is a day trip for us. We always go East to West because it follows the sun. We are about three hours drive from St. Mary's, so we leave here about 9 am, have lunch in St. Mary's, wander over the top at our leisure, and get home the same day, returning North through Eureka/Grassmere.

Great shots. The bear grass (foreground in first shot) is having a bloom season this year. There is usually some, but it is spectacular this year. Last bloom was five years ago, I think. We've been to Waterton a couple of times this year, and it's a great year for it. Waterton + Glacier is the first international peace park, 1932.
I'm really jealous that you live in such a beautiful area. I'd love to have regular access to the park.

BTW- will that lunch in St. Mary's be at the Park Cafe? I miss their pie almost as much as the park

Actually, we are partial to a half rack of ribs at the Inn.

Did you decide to make the drive to Glacier? Love to see some pics if you took some.

No, we couldn't make it. The Arts Co-op had an emergency, so I sat the shop today instead. It's still on the to-do list, though. I do have some scans of MZ-S using Fuji 400 film, but they are more interesting to Claire's two sisters who came for a two week visit than to photographers. They, along with the rest of the visit's snaps, made a nice book on Blurb for Christmas presents.
