Gumbo's Pic of the Day, October 21, 2015: Swiftcurrent Lake, Montana

Swiftcurrent Lake, MontanaWhile it's not the largest lake in Montana's Glacier National Park, it certainly has one of the prettiest settings.  Looking west towards the Continental Divide from the eastern bank, you have the view you see above.

 

Many Glacier Hotel and Swiftcurrent Lake, Montana

  

Looking east from the western bank, you get this great scene of the classic Many Glacier hotel.  It  was built by the Great Northern Railway a century ago, is the largest hotel in the park, and has a scenic setting that's pretty hard to beat.
