Not Today’s View from Apgar, Glacier National Park (Leica M9)

Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park


The view from Apgar would look like this today if not for the rain and fog.

This photo was taken a few evenings ago when there were just enough clouds to add character and just enough ripple on the lake to give it a little bit of texture.

Today we leave here and trek into the upper reaches of the Middle Fork Flathead River, back in the Great Bear Wilderness, where we’ll see fewer tourists, no tire tracks, and no wooden viewing platforms over the rapids of the river.
