Glacier National Park (part 1): Reflecting on Lake McDonald

One of the first few hikes I did at Glacier National Park was along Lake McDonald. I had hoped to be closer to the lake for more of the hike, but at one point (in a somewhat burned out area from a previous wildfire), I got a good view of the lake and the mountains on the other side. I made my way down to the lake shore and the wind stopped for a little bit to provide these stunning reflection shots. As I wrapped up my photos, the wind picked back up just enough to ripple the lake surface enough to break any reflections – as I made the return trip and got breaks in the trees to look back out over the lake, I didn’t notice any more calm conditions like this. The mountain in the middle is Mount Brown (8563 ft) flanked by Edwards Mountain (9013 ft) on the right and Mount Cannon (8829 ft) on the left (I think).
