Montana is was where I grew up and my backyard was Glacier National Park. I spent countless hours hiking, climbing and exploring its many mountains, valleys and lakes. I couldnâ€™t think of a more perfect way to bring in the New Year than a late evening hike around Lake McDonald. It was below zero, there was a thin layer of ice over the water- still transparent enough to see through but reflecting the most stunning, electric, water-colored sky. I had seen this sunset and this lake a thousand times but none more perfect or more beautiful than this.
