I visited Glacier National Park in the summer of 2005. While there I
took over 300 photos of the gorgeous scenery, including several of
Grinnell Lake from virtually the same spot as this one. This picture
puts mine to shame - and I always thought they were quite good.
Kudos to the photographer for a fine job indeed!
