Calm days like this on Lake McDonald happen, surprisingly, quite often. The west side of Glacier National Park doesn't have nearly the wind that the east side of the park. As such, during the morning and again during the evening hours, you can often find the lake "smooth as glass", just like this. It doesn't happen everyday, but it happens enough so that it isn't a "rare event" like a calm day is over on the east side of the park. The mountains in this photo are part of the Apgar Mountains. A lookout is located on the far left of the range, called Apgar Lookout. This lookout provides a great view of Lake McDonald and the rest of the park, and is reached by hiking up the Apgar Lookout Trail. This photo was taken before the Robert Fire of 2003, which completely "nuked" the mountain.
