Grinnell Lake, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA
Info. Grinnell Lake, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA
Glacier National Park is in northwestern Montana, on the Canada–United States border. There are over 700 lakes in the park, but only 131 have a name. One of those is the beautiful Grinnell Lake, which we are looking down on in our picture. It is nestled under the park’s glacier-carved mountains and has a turquoise appearance from the glacial silt. Grinnell Lake is named after the American naturalist George Bird Grinnell, who played an important role in the creation of Glacier National Park in 1910 and called the area the 'Crown of the Continent'.
