I had the pleasure of visiting one of my favorite places in Lake Ellen Wilson Glacier National Park world, Glacier National Park. It was August of and the passes had just lost their last grip of winter. I took this trip with my good friend Marnee Banks. It was just us two for three days. We passed by two lakes, two passes and a ton of wildlife.

Gunsight Lake was a spectacle! The basin above it was filled with waterfalls, hanging snow fields and lush greenery. Gorgeous clouds on the way up to Gunsight Lake. Click image to buy print Before heading up the pass, we were greeted by Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt young moose.
