A visit to Glacier National Park | Summer 2020

For me a visit to the Flathead Valley area of MT isn't complete until I visit Glacier National Park. This time we checked out the Hungry Horse Dam, took some photos of Lion Lake near the dam, and went to Apgar inside the park. Apgar is the area next to Lake McDonald in Glacier. We had a picnic near the lake, and then for dessert we grabbed an ice cream cone at Eddie's Grocery and Cafe. I enjoyed a Huckleberry ice cream in a waffle cone and it was fabulous. 

Everything at Glacier was gorgeous and I was lucky to get some good scenic shots. I was happy with the lighting at Hungry Horse Dam. My dad took my sons and I one evening after dinner. My son is really into structures and was super excited to see the dam. Last time he saw it, he was only three and not as interested. My sons had a blast at Lake McDonald, since skipping rocks, or trying to skip rocks, is one of their favorite pastimes.

Lion Lake. 

Another shot of Lion Lake, but with a red canoe! I like the reflections from the trees and the canoe.

The iconic view of Lake McDonald. This time, I wanted to get a shot of the rocks under the water. Can you see how clear the water is? 

A family having a blast playing on their huge unicorn floater. How fun! 

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! 


Two years ago on my last visit, I promised myself I'd come to Eddie's and try one of their Huckleberry cones. I'm so glad I did. It was worth the wait!
