Travel photo of the day: Sunny day at Lake McDonald

Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.

Stephan Ferry was visiting Lake McDonald, which lies at the west entrance of Glacier National Park, in the fall of 2011 on a windless, sunny day when he captured this image.

Glaciers carved this lake, the largest in the park, which reaches 10 miles in length and nearly 500 feet deep. The valley in which the lake sits features hiking trails, plant and animal life, historic chalets and Lake McDonald Lodge.

"Every day in Glacier is unique ... but this day was simply incredible," Ferry told TODAY.com. "The problems of the days, weeks, years slip away as soon as you set eyes on the beauty of the park."
