Image: Iceberg Lake, Glacier National Park

“It’s easy to take amazing pictures there, it’s so beautiful,” said Boise, Idaho’s Kelli Geselle, whose photo of Iceberg Lake, in Montana’s Glacier National Park was this week’s top-rated It’s A Snap! Image.

In 2008, Geselle and a few of her fellow seasonal workers from the Izzak Walton Inn, enjoyed some time off to take a hike on a clear August day.

“It was a beautiful day, not a cloud in sight. On the way up, we came across a mama and baby grizzly bear digging for roots, they were only about 75 feet away — It was pretty amazing. We started clapping, singing — doing what you’re supposed to do ... it was terrifying.”

Geselle, a 25-year-old student finishing her bachelor’s degree in English and writing at the College of Western Idaho, recommends heading to the Swiss-style Many Glacier Hotel for a relaxing paddleboat ride on Swiftcurrent Lake or a great hike to one of the many glaciers ( … while they last).

A must-do for visitors? Geselle says make sure you stop in at The Izzak Walton Inn (located right in between East and West Glacier) to enjoy their famous huckleberry cobbler. 

Geselle snapped the winning shot with a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS.
