Glacier National Park

glacier-np-sunset-hdr Get excited about the creative photographic process while surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in North America to get your artistic juices flowing!

Glacier National Park, known as the Crown Jewel of the National Park System, sits astride the Continental Divide in northwestern Montana. While hiking, visitors to Glacier are treated to countless mountain peaks, alpine lakes and glaciers, and astounding displays of wildflowers. Wildlife abounds in the park and sightings of bears, mountain goats and bighorn sheep are regular. The scenery in the park is beautiful, and the sunrises/sunsets during the long summer days are spectacular.
