View from the St. Mary Visitor Center

This view from the St. Mary Visitor Center looks out across flower-filled meadows to the majestic peaks surrounding St. Mary Lake. The large central peak in the view is Red Eagle Mountain. Just out of view and to the left would be the St. Mary Entrance Station. On the right is the self-service entrance kiosk that was just installed in October. Occasionally there will be people in cars parked there paying their fees. In the summer the cars of park visitors, just entering the park, are often seen. In the winter, on cold snowy mornings, look for herds of elk in the meadows.
