Here is a map view of my photography locations during a the summer trip to Glacier National Park.  Each orange box with numbers shows a location and the number of images taken there.  The map is a screen capture from the Map Module in Adobe Lightroom.  I used a Bad Elf GPS Tracker to log my location throughout the trip.  I then merged the saved tracks form the GPS tracker with the images in Lightroom.

Here are the locations and the images, starting from the “8” on theft side of the map:

“8” – Polebridge Mercantile.  Inside the mercantile are some knick knacks and bakery items of photographic interest.

“5” and “6” on Lake McDonald.  Some good vista images of the lake and surrounding hills.

“20” and “27” are Logan Pass Visitor Center and Hidden Lake Overlook.  Lots of landscapes and fields of flowers during the walk to the overlook.

“14” is a stop along the Going to to the Sun Road before the Logan’s Pass Visitor Center.  Several waterfalls and scenic vistas in this area

“18” is a stop along the Going to to the Sun Road past the Logan’s Pass Visitor Center.  More waterfalls and scenic vistas in this area

The blank square is a single image at a waterfall at the top of Saint Mary Lake

“161” is the Lost Goose Island overlook.  This is the iconic image for Glacier National Park.  I spent several hours there from well before sunrise until about 0900.  Still have a LOT of images to review and delete.

“31” is a waterfall beside the Many Glacier Hotel

Not shown are a lot of images taken from one of the tour boats on Saint Mary Lake.  I forgot to start my GPS tracker that day.

With the exception of the Hidden Lake Overlook, all of the images were taken within 100 yards of the main road.  I was with a non-hiker and only had a few days in the park, so I did not wander to any of the more remote photography locations.
