All these pictures were taken with an iPhone 5. Also, the weather was not cooperative and we didn't see much blue sky. Here is a selection of the best pictures of the approximately 80 pictures I took (thank heaven for digital). As my friend Gavin Seim would point out, they are "snapshots" but even then I tried to take the best pictures I could.
We arrived later than planned due to road construction delays and me taking a wrong turn. By the time we had dinner and got to our hotel parking lot, it was dark. And we were greeted by this fellow: a coyote. He didn't seem to want to come into the lighted parking lot so I snapped his picture but due to low light and zooming it, the picture is very poor quality. I wondered at that point how much wildlife we'd encounter. And actually, it wasn't much.

The next morning we drove into the park from the east side on the Going to the Sun Road and when we saw the scene below was when we first got a clue we were into something special. We stopped by the road to take this picture of St. Mary Lake along with some of the mountains in Glacier National Park.

After seeing that we stopped to take a picture of Wild Goose Island in St. Mary Lake and that picture is here.
Glacier National Park was named so because of the abundance of glaciers on the mountains in the area. This was the first glacier we saw that morning.
