Park your car at the St. Mary's waterfall turnout along the Going to the Sun Road just west of St. Mary Lake. Take the trail for about a mile to this location. Further down the trail is St. Mary falls.
Hiking in Montana's Glacier National Park is the kind of experience that surprises you with views like this that explode in your senses as you enter a clearing. Two of my four brothers, Rich and Bob, are busy shooting their own version of this breathtaking beauty as I took this shot. If you ever get a chance to go to Montana do not miss this priceless gem of America's national park system.
