The Beauty of Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park Wilderness

in photography •  last year

This pristine wilderness lake is in a deep valley between Numa Ridge to the north (Left in this image) and Cerulan Ridge to the south. At 7 miles long and only 1/2 mile wide the bluish aquamarine waters are so calm and crystal clear you can see the bottom 30 feet below! 

This is Bowman Lake, a remote lake in Glacier National Park only 3 miles from the Montana / Canada border.  

Here is a link to google maps for the location of this beautiful place. 

This is a close up of the long view down the lake and through the pass you can see Thunderbird Glacier sticking out through the clouds. 

And this is an even closer view of the cliffs above Thunderbird Glacier, all part of Livingston Ridge which also is part of the twisting Continental Divide. 

These images are from my ongoing project in which I am trying to raise awareness of the 47% of the USA and 90% of Canada that remain unpopulated wilderness.  

Where Eagles Fly - The American Wilderness Expedition is my personal mission to introduce people to these amazing locations that surround us.

So beautiful, great pictures

wow wow wow that is beautiful (especially the first image)

Bowman Lake must be simply awesome to see from the air. To be that crystal clear that you can see the bottom 30 feet down is just amazing. The things you have seen and experienced first hand are astounding. Thank you for sharing.

@skypilot
Do you have any shots from above, looking down into the bottom?
I realize that flying the plane may take most of your time (Be safe, pilot!), just wondering if you have shots to see the bottom of the lake?
