Almost A Dog Mountain

Imazí-imita” is Blackfoot for Almost A Dog. As a young man, he was one of the very few survivors that were part of the horrific 1870 Marias Massacre. His entire family was killed in this tragic and totally unnecessary attack, and although crippled for life, he survived this horrible event. Then 13 years later he survived the horrendous Starvation Winter of 1883-84. It is befitting that this harsh and stark mountain be named after a Blackfoot warrior who suffered such a starkly, harsh life.

In this image above, the rugged Mount Logan, in the immediate foreground sternly towers above the landscape in this image lensed in the late fall before the winter snows begin. With glaciers on two sides, Pumpelly Glacier and Logan Glacier on the right Mount Logan has 2 of the remaining 25 glaciers in Glacier National Park. In 1850, there were an estimated 150 glaciers in the park but today Glaciologists have predicted that by the year 2030, all the glaciers in the park may disappear.

If you look closely in the valley on the ride side, middle of the image, that is known as Red Eagle Creek and has 2 beautiful waterfalls below that valley that help drain the snowmelt and rainwater into Red Eagle Lake below. Up above that small valley to the right, along the middle edge of this image is a pyramid-shaped peak known as Split Mountain. Behind that peak is a vibrant purple mountain called Medicine Owl Peak and to the left of that is the brightly colored White Calf Mountain.

If you follow the ridgeline to the immediate upper left of Mount Logan you come to Almost-A-Dog Mountain. Continuing along the ridgeline to the left is Dusty Star Mountain and on the other side of the ridge slightly to the right is Little Chief Mountain. On the other side of the mountains, you can see a body of water in the distance, this is St. Mary Lake. The small strip of land separating the lake is where the tiny community of St. Mary is located. This is the eastern entrance to Glacier National Park up through Going-To-The-Sun-Mountain road.

In this image, Citadel Mountain basks in the light of evening sunset, casting it looming shadow over Almost A Dog Mountain on the right and Little Chief Mountain on the left along with Mahtotopa Mountain and Red Eagle Mountain, the purple tip of the mountain chain. These mountains overlook Saint Mary Lake, on the left side of this image.
