Iceberg of the Mountains

The Iceberg Lake Trail in Glacier National Park will bring you to this beautiful teal pool carved out by, you guessed it, a glacier. The small chunks of glacial ice still clung to the mountain’s cliffs in early September and the icebergs floating around the pool had stunning crevices of blue ice. Normally hiking on a…

Glacier’s Iceberg Lake

Glacier National Park, in Montana, is home to some of the most stunning landscape in the lower 48 States. I first traveled through this natural wonder when I was 19 while on a road trip from Georgia to Alaska. We only had a day to spend driving through the park, but I swore that I…

Glacier Berries

I found these berries along the Highline Trail near the Granite Park Chalet in Glacier National Park. I can’t recommend the Highline Trail enough. If you don’t have a fear of heights (exposure to steep drop offs) and love beautiful mountain scenery with the occasional mountain goat blocking your path than you will love the…

Mt. Gould

This is a closeup look at the formidable east wall of Mt. Gould in Glacier National Park. It is the highest point along the ridge formation known as the “garden wall.” This east wall plunges 4,000′ in less than half a mile. Want a view from the top? It is actually easier than it looks…

Grinnell View

This is a view back down the valley as seen near the Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park. The beautiful turquoise waters created by glacier silt are seen below. The closest lake in the image is Grinnell Lake, then Lake Josephine in the middle and Sherburne Lake off in the distance. It is a fairly…

Saint Mary Lake

The faint predawn light colors the sky in a pale red glow, revealing the snow-capped mountains of Glacier National Park. I love this park, especially this spot. Goose Island stands in the center of Saint Mary Lake almost as if in defiance of its watery surroundings. My wife and I saw a black bear rummaging through the berry…

River of Fog

The early morning fog lies in one of Glacier National Park’s picturesque valleys. I took this foggy river-like image from the Highline Trail. As I understand it, there once was a proposal to build a dam here called Glacier View Dam. It would have created a lake very similar to the footprint that this fog outlines. The Highline…
