Glacier National Park – Lake McDonald

This August my friend and follow photographer, Perri K. Schelat,  invited me to hike and photograph with her in Glacier National Park. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to spend 11 days in the park sharing my passion for photography with Perri. She gave an excellent tour – taking me to all the great photo hot spots in the park.

We started in the west side of the Glacier at Lake McDonald. Perri calls this location “Mountain Jewels” for all the colorful rocks found in the lake bed. This rocks are really vibrant and when wet are truly beautiful. See Perri’s award winning photo here.

We spent two days working the Lake McDonald, Agar Village and Avalanche Creek Flume area hoping for a dramatic sunrise or suset that didn’t happen, before heading off to the east side and St. Mary’s. See Blog post here.
