Glacier National Park can be hard to reach in summer, and doubly hard to reach in winter. But for the lucky ones who do, the setting is gorgeous, as this video attests.
Taken December 17 on the shores of Lake McDonald, the video shows off some of the park's snow-capped peaks and speaks to the tranquility one can find in Glacier. Here's how the park staff describe this setting:
This iconic view from Apgar, at the foot of Lake McDonald, really shows what Glacier is all about...big glacially carved lakes, vast wild views of the high peaks along the Continental Divide, and the ever-changing forests that blanket much of the lower elevations. It's no wonder that for many people when they think of Glacier, they think of this view.
