Photographer's Note

In this Glacier National Park view is Lake Mary, which has been the scene for a number of movies; my favorite - the opening credits scene from Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson driving his family up the Going to the Sun Road. Leftover aerial shots were also used in the closing scene of the 1982 "Blade Runner".

Lake Mary Lake is the second largest lake in the Park after Lake McDonald. It is located on the east side of the Park. The distant center mountain is "Chief Mountain", 9,541 feet (2,908 meters) high. The lake is frequently completely frozen over in the winter.
