Glacier National Park, Montana: St. Mary Lake
I f you do a little research on Glacier National Park, and look at some books, you almost certainly will come across a photo that resembles this one. Everyone takes it from some angle close to this. That's the distinctive Goose Island sitting in the middle of the lake.
The difference, of course, is that the professional photographers can afford to wait a week to get just the right day to take just the right picture. It was a little cloudy when we were there, at least at the higher altitudes. It does add a little drama to the shot, in one sense.
The Continental Divide is above the end of the lake.
