Glasgow, Montana

Photograph by Aaron Huey

30 Years in Pictures
Celebrate National Geographic Traveler's first three decades with flashes from the past.

Hands on heart for the national anthem, the Glasgow High School football team prepares for a game in a scene, photographer Aaron Huey says, that is "the kind of Americana that is so American it looks fake." This photo appeared in "The Last Real America," an April 2006 National Geographic Traveler article about northeastern Montana.

Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
