Beginning on October 3, 2016, the power, and network connectivity, to the St. Mary Visitor Center will but shut off as a consequence of the construction work on the new entrance station kiosks. The St. Mary Webcam will remain off-line until sometime in May of 2017.
This view from the St. Mary Visitor Center looks west to the mountains surrounding St. Mary Lake. Red Eagle Mountain looms directly in the center. In the winter and spring elk are often spotted in the meadow at first light. In summer wildflowers carpet the view. Fall sees the green turn to a golden hue which contrasts with the bright blue of the sky.
