Charting Your Course
Stretching across 1,583 square miles, Glacier National Park is bursting with beautiful locations to explore. But with limited time on your vacation, it’s essential to choose a photographer who can swiftly shepherd you from one spot to another. That’s where I come in! Together, we will select the perfect location for your photo session, and here are a few of my fan favorites so you can begin to imagine what your session will be like!
Apgar - At the west entrance’s main village, you’ll find lodging, dining, shopping, and activities for the whole family. And the views of the snow-capped mountains reflected in crystal-clear Lake McDonald are some of the best the park has to offer without having to trek off the grid.
Logan Pass - A trip along Going-To-The-Sun Road never fails to take my breath away. You really do feel like you’re driving into the sun while the steep slopes and towering glaciers combine to create a view unlike any other.
St. Mary’s - Nestled in East Glacier, this spot was once devastated by a forest fire. Today, however, life has returned in the form of colorful wildflowers, making it a breathtaking place for photos. Especially with the distant mountain view in the background, it’s a sight you won’t want to miss!
Two Medicine - In the national park’s southeast corner, you’ll find this ideal spot for camping, boat rides, day hikes, and, yep, photos! And, trust me, the glow of Sinopah mountain at sunrise will take your breath away.
Many Glacier - The park section as far northeast as we can go is home to some of my all-time favorite hikes. A visit to Iceberg Lake is definitely worth the trip. And I’d definitely recommend a stay at Many Glacier Hotel overlooking Swiftcurrent Lake to see the pink mountain glow at sunrise.
Bowman Lake - This lake in the North Fork region is in a less touristy section of the park, meaning it comes with calm waters and silence. And even though it requires a bit of a drive, the alpenglow on the mountains at sunset is an unforgettable sight.
Leave No Trace
I believe in leaving our earth beautiful for the next person after us. I also believe in planning ahead, having consideration for the people around me, packing out what I packed in, traveling on durable surfaces, and leaving what I find (pretty flowers and rocks) for the next person. I incorporate these practices in my business and philosophy as a photographer, and expect my clients to as well. We can all do better to make this world a better place! Learn more at www.LNT.org
