Lake McDonald Webcam View

What are those crazy lines on Lake McDonald? Giant tic-tac-toe board perhaps? The lines in the ice you see on Lake McDonald are pressure ridges from the water movement underneath the ice.

To many visitors to the park, this view is their first introduction to the spectacular scenery of Glacier National Park. This iconic view from Apgar, at the foot of Lake McDonald, really shows what Glacier is all about...big glacially carved lakes, vast wild views of the high peaks along the Continental Divide, and the ever-changing forests that blanket much of the lower elevations. It's no wonder that for many people when they think of Glacier, they think of this view.
