More Photos (II) of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, Montana, U.S.A and Alberta, Canada (August 5-7, 2008)

The “Garden Wall,” a knife-edged ridge (known as an arete) along the Continental Divide, was formed by glaciers on either side

Here I am at Hidden Lake Overlook. The trees in the background are surprisingly tiny, but they’re actually hundreds of years old; entire elfin forests exist here, stunted and twisted by the harsh alpine environment.

St. Mary Lake, surrounded by peaks on the eastern side of the park, is almost as long as Lake McDonald
