Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park

20130309-_DSC0333Recently I had the pleasure of spending some time in and around Glacier National Park, courtesy of Western Montana’s Glacier Country. Although winter clouds often sock in the western half of the park, we had two days of uncommon, glorious sun. I got this photo of Lake McDonald at sunset as winter clouds once again moved in to replace blue skies.

Palouse Falls
