This photograph was taken from St. Mary’s in eastern Glacier National Park when the last of the summer sun was striking the mountain peaks.
St. Mary’s is to the northeast of Going-to-the Sun Road, a 50 mile (31 km) road traversing many mountains and crossing the Continental Divide. Logan Pass is its highest point at 6,646′ (2026m), where the snowdrifts can reach 80′ (24m) deep.
Waterton – Glacier International Peace Park straddles the USA – Canadian border at Montana, USA, and Alberta, Canada, and is a World Heritage Site. Glacier National Park features stunning turquoise glacial lakes and sculpted mountain peaks of unique magenta, blue, green and yellow rock. The valleys and mountain slopes are abundant with wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush, Glacier Lily, Beargrass and Monkeyflower. The area also supports many large animals such as grizzly bears, moose, bighorn sheep, elk, mountain goats and wolves.
