Reynolds Mountain, Glacier National Park
The Continental Divide in Glacier National Park is very purdy in mid-July! Patches of snow mix with colorful wild flowers and rocky mountain summits, as shown in this photo of Reynolds Mountain taken from Logan Pass. At an elevation of 6646 feet, this is the highest elevation of the main road through the park, Going-to-the-Sun Road. Reynolds Mountain is an excellent example of a glacial horn, or a pyramid-shaped peak that has been carved by multiple glaciers.
