Default Morning - Lake St. Mary and Wild Goose Island- Glacier National Park

Hi,

Shot this while dodging the grizzlies in Glacier National Park.

It is a spectacular place to visit. Please go if you ever have a chance. The cabins next to Lake St. Mary (Rising Sun Cabins) were the best ones price wise. However, since 2005 they have gone up over 300% (did inflation go up 300% since 2005?). The commercialization of our... OUR national parks is disgusting. This is now run by a concessionaire and it is not about letting an owner (citizen) stay in the park that their tax dollars pay for but rather about making a profit. Sorry to get on a rant here but it is really sad to me.

I don't go to several parks any more due to this.

Another stunning classic shot. I have been to kalispell and snowboarded at big mountain but did not visit the park.
