My Best Shot

We live in Towson and last summer we traveled out West to explore Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. It was at Glacier National Park in Montana where I photographed my son overlooking Avalanche Lake. Fed by Sperry Glacier above, waterfalls spew thousands of feet down the cliffs at the head of the lake. We hiked through pouring rain, up to this subalpine lake, only to be rewarded with a break in the weather and this incredible view.
