I do love Ponderosa Pines with their coarse red bark, long green clumps of needles, and gnarly-shaped branches. Wild Horse Island is loaded with them. Since their fallen needles discourage undergrowth, a forest of them can take on an enchanted look—particularly in the twilight hours.
Here is a great kayak route that Marlene and I took in Glacier National Park. It was a short scenery packed morning trip from Swiftcurrent Lake up the connecting creek (and back) to Lake Josephine.

Here is a fun pouring technique that I did of a Glacier National Park watercolor painting during a workshop. It is available as a download course (with downloadable/printable reference materials) here: http://spetz.teachable.com/courses/lakesherburne

Wild Horse Island State Park has about 6 resident wild horses. They sometimes come down near the Skeeko Bay anchorage in the evenings. They are not particularly afraid of humans, though approaching them is forbidden, for good reason, anyway.
With well over 100 resident Bighorn Sheep, the island might have been more appropriately named Bighorn Sheep Island.
This place is a treasure.
