Glacier: Kintla Lake at Summer’s End

Summer is short at Kintla Lake; even in late August the nights are getting cold, the days are shorter, the squirrels are madly caching food for the winter, and you feel like the weather could turn at any moment.   The lake, always beautiful, changes from one hour to the next.     

12:30 p.m.  August 27.

    Every morning is a good morning for hot coffee. Some venues are obviously better than others.
