Nyack Creek ~ Red Eagle Pass

Location Origin Story

You can see a glimpse of Nyack Creek at the bottom of this wilderness canyon in the right foreground, follow this canyon to the far end of and we come upon Red Eagle Pass. This was an ancient traditional route through the Rocky Mountains, for the First Nations peoples on both sides of the mountain. The large cliffs on the right side of the valley are the base of Three Suns Mountain, named in honor of a Blackfeet Chief. The mountains on the left are Mount Thompson and Blackfoot Mountain.

This valley was a main passageway during the summer and fall months, connecting the west side of the mountains to the east side through a rugged trail that climbed up out of this valley and down the other side at Red Eagle Creek below Red Eagle Mountain, right next to Saaint Mary Lake.

About This Photograph

This wondrous vision of such a spiritually inspiring mountain range was created while exploring the Middle Fork of the Flathead River in the John F. Stevens Valley part of what is known as the Theodore Rosevelt Pass.

Image Rarity

The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.

Zedekiah used the manner in which these clouds shrouded the mountains as a backdrop, plus the ending light of the evening as a filtering effect, where timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.

Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
