Glacier National Park, Montana: Sun Point
The picture doesn't do this part of Glacier National Park justice; it's one of the best places on earth. That's in part because it's something of a surprise -- visitors park their cars, walk several yards up a hill ... and St. Mary Lake and the surrounding mountain envelop the viewer. The lake goes a few miles to the east and west from this viewpoint, and it has that blue-green color associated with snowfall runoff.
