A rather unusual perspective...

This rather unusual look taken during descent from Rising Wolf. Flinsch Peak is on the far left, then (with the seemingly flat top) Mount Stimson; Mount Morgan rises above the lake at right. The two lakes are Young Man Lake (L), and Oldman Lake (R). (Interesting bit of language trivia, that one of the tarns is shown on maps as one word, while the other is broken into a more normal two-word appellation. Hence, "Young Man," versus "Oldman.")

that is a unique perspective (and area)....the lakes mirror each other, size, elevation, basins, etc....

I second the drooling... I gotta add glacier national park to my future plans. A simply amazing shot.

Re: interesting

It would take me hours more to get down then "usual" with a view like this!

In my opinion not "interesting" but brilliant!

Hi, SG!!!
This highly voted your picture presenting blue-grey lakes I attach to my album "Colour lakes...". I hope it will be right?

Now familiar!

I had never noticed that Mt. Stimson was in this photo until I saw it this time. Then I suddenly remembered that Rising Wolf Mtn was the mountain we circumnavigated during our Stimson trip last August. Only then did I recognize the terrain from Cut Bank Pass to Pitamakan Pass and from there down toward Oldman Lake. And of course the profile of Mt. Stimson itself is now indelibly carved into my little remaining gray matter. Little did I realize way back when I voted on this photo that I would someday visit any of the points in the photo, much less several of its key locations -- traversed the back side of Flinsch Peak, hiked over Cut Bank Pass twice, hiked over Pitamakan Pass and down toward Oldman Lake, then down the trail toward Two Medicine, and of course most importantly, climbed the entire SE ridge of Stimson! Amazing! Wish you could have been there! But I wouldn't recommend the route -- if you're going to have to bushwhack anyway, might as well bushwhack up Pinchot Creek and get the peak done in 3 days instead of 5! -Bob

Re: Now familiar!

Yeah, I wish I'd been there as well! Still have plans for Stimson, probably up Pinchot Creek. It'd be nice to do Pinchot along with Stimson, so it might match your five day outing, at that! Talk about nice country to get lost in....

A true masterpiece. Must have been a beautiful day out there. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Outstanding.

Yup, it was indeed a nice day. Wrong time of the day for best light, but it still came out okay. And what a wonderful area!!

Thanks for the comment.

Great shot

would this shot be more dramatic at sunset or sunrise, I do not know in what direction the picture is taken.

Re: Great shot

Shot is looking west, and taken around 2 PM; would definitely have been better early morning!

Re: Amazing

Thanks for the comment--if you've never been to GNP, I envy you those first-visit emotions. To put it in a kind of vernacular slang: it'll blow the top of your head off! An absolutely marvelous place!
