Apgar Village - Lake McDonald

At the west end of Going to the Sun Road is Apgar Village.  There are gift shops, a restaurant and a lodge.  It is located at the west end of Lake McDonald, the largest lake in Glacier National Park.

Looking over Lake McDonald from the boat dock shortly after I arrived.

I attended a ranger program on the Geology of Glacier National Park.  This was the view from the amphitheater where the talk was held taken before the talk began.

After the talk from the same location as the previous picture.  I cannot express how beautiful and peaceful it was here.


  1. That reminds me of a place I passed on the Empire Builder. I definately need to go there.

    1. The Empire Builder passes within about two miles from here when it passes through West Glacier. I could hear trains sounding the road crossing warning from here. I'm guessing it was when they crossed the west end of Going to the Sun Road.
