Lake St Mary Sunrise

I got up early Monday Morning, partially becuase my body might have still been on Eastern time, but mostly because I wanted to catch a sunrise.  Amy had no desire to get up just yet, so I left her in bed at the cabin and went off on my own to catch a sunrise over Lake St Mary!

I first stopped at the Wild Goose Island overlook, but quickly realized that it didn't face in the right direction for sunrise, so I just took a few quick early morning shots of Wild Goose Island.

I soon found a great overlook for a sunrise shot or two (or a hundred), and got there just in time for some spectacular pre-sunrise twilight color.

The sunrise that followed was pretty spectacular and well worth getting up early for!

After sunrise, I headed back to Amy at our cabin, grabbed some breakfast, checked out, and we started our drive up to the "Many Glacier" area of the park.
