Grinnell Lake tucked below Mount Gould in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park. This image was captured 30 minutes before sunset as low angle light illuminates the mountainsides and paints the clouds that were hovering over the continental divide all that afternoon.

The hike up to this location is off the Grinnell Glacier Trail, one of the most scenic hikes in the park, IMO. This area is also prime Grizzly bear Country and makes for a bit of a sketchy hike back in the dark, but so worth it for the tremendous views. Just remember to bring your Bear Spray :)
