Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park

photo of the week for Saturday, 2008, May 3
Photographer: Jane Timmerman

Ms. Timmerman lives in Kalispell, Montana, only about 35 miles from the west entrance of Glacier National Park. As a member of a local photography club, she frequently heads into the park.

"Almost weekly I go there to get my 'peace fix' and to photograph nature," she says. "In the summer I camp on the east side to be able to spend more time hiking and photographing the sights in that area. Both the east and west sides of Glacier offer great photo opportunities.

"I love to photograph the mountains, lakes, and wildflowers of Glacier and also the Canadian Rockies."

Want to see more? Ms. Timmerman is a member of the Glacier Camera Club, and more of her pictures can be seen at this site.

Very nice picture

That's a great shot!

Glacier National Park is greatest place on earth!

This shot took me right back to our Glacier trip three years ago. I will never forget its beautiful sites, especially the hike to Grinnell Glacier. After seeing this, I spent the morning looking at the pictures we had taken when there. Beautiful shot! Thank you for sharing!
