Photo and caption by Rick May

The photo above, showing a lovely scene in Glacier National Park Montana, was captured along a fast-moving section of McDonald Creek. This is the longest stream within the park (approximately 25 mi or 40 km in length). Its headwaters are on Mount Geduhn in the Livingston Range. Before emptying into Lake McDonald, the stream had to cut its way through layers of shale, limestone and sandstone of the Belt Supergroup. McDonald Creek is one of the many glacial streams in Glacier National Park falling hard from the high country to the plains below.

Location: Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park, Montana
