High alpine lakes are great for providing stunning reflections in their mirror-like surfaces. One of the best such places in the United States is Glacier National Park in northwest Montana.
The above images were taken from the shore of Fishercap Lake, just a short walk from the Swiiftcurrent campground. There were numerous moose sightings at this lake during our two-week stay, not to mention deer, black, bear, and the mystical grizzly bear.
Nestled along the shore of Swiftcurrent Lake is the impressive Many Glaciers Lodge. This Swiss Chalet-style lodge was built by the Great Northern Railway in 1914 and 1915. It is the largest hotel within Glacier National Park, with 208 rooms. Swiftcurrent Lake is full of beautiful, native Eastern Brook Trout that thrive in the bone-chilling water provided by the surrounding glaciers and high-mountain streams.
