McDonald Creek & the Garden Wall

McDonald Creek & the Garden Wall

July 01, 2007 | Glacier National Park

It took a lot of work to take this photo. First I climbed down a steep hillside down to the creek, whereupon I lost both of my tennis shoes in the mud ended up with sopping/muddy feet/legs. So what better to do that go wading in the water? I found this rock a little ways off into the water and thought it'd be a great foreground for the Garden Wall.

This creek, McDonald Creek, leads to Lake McDonald, a very beautiful and large lake nestled in the foothills of the mountains of Glacier. The Garden Wall was formed over thousands of years of glaciers moving along its sides. I was told that parts of the wall are so thin that they can actually be straddled.
