Glacier National Park Photographer's Guide


Glacier National Park in Montana. This is a great park to view mountain, lakes, waterfalls, and wildlife. All of my images are from September 2010. The main road is the Going to the Sun Road and it is your key to all the popular spots. From Lake McDonald on the west side of the park up and over the Continental divide to St Marys Lake.

Lake McDonald

Look for the colorful rocks in the lake. You will be surrounded by mountains so look for some cool reflections

Trail of the Cedars

A great hike in the woods with multiple tree shots available. Plus a really cool gorge

Many Glacier

Top of the world with multiple mountain tops to shoot. I would love to be here for an awesome sunrise or sunset. Get out of your car like this guy and check out the scenes


St Mary Lake

Wild Goose Island in the middle of this lake is awesome. Try a wide angle or zoom in and capture these huge peaks around the tiny islands 


Two Medicine

Problem with only having one sunset is sometimes the clouds come in. Give yourself multiple days so you can chase the light.


Going to the Sun Road

This road sets the ball on the tee for you to get some amazing shots. The leaves are right beside a bathroom and stop at the pull offs to find some great views.So always keep your eye open for photo opportunities.
