Portraits of National Parks - #2 Glacier National Park, Mt

 

Glacier National Park is a 1,583-sq.-mi. wilderness area in Montana's Rocky Mountains, with glacier-carved peaks and valleys running to the Canadian border. It's crossed by the mountainous Going-to-the-Sun Road. Among more than 700 miles of hiking trails, it has a route to photogenic Hidden Lake. Other activities include backpacking, cycling and camping. Diverse wildlife ranges from mountain goats to grizzly bears. (Source: Wikipedia)

Its amazing beauty, colorfulness, and grace is impossible to miss among the landscape of national parks. I used a limited palette of colors as the vibrant natural contrasts capture the eye and bring a sense of calm.

I would love to know what's your favorite national park, here in US or anywhere else in the World?
