The entirety of Glacier National Park, Montana, United States, captivates travelers' hearts from the moment one's eyes fall on the craggy peaks, expansive lakes, and wide open skies. This plateau faces the eastern side of the park, just beyond St. Mary's Lake. This moment allowed the light to peak through the passing clouds exposing the colors of the layered geologic history and creating a sense of bliss in those of us fortunate to be present.
