A morning swim to bird island

I'm embarrassed that I can't remember the name of that little island out there. I think it's called Bird Island... but I am not totally sure! If I wasn't so lazy, I'd open up Google Earth to figure it out for sure. But then I know I have a lot of clever readers who can probably tell me for sure!

 

This was taken in Glacier National Park. I woke up around 5 AM to drive out to this lake to capture the little island in the soft morning light. I really like this area of the rockies. They seem very old and ancient to me. I spent the rest of the morning tromping through the forest, trying to find more interesting vantage points while making enough noise to scare away any grizzlies that might have been looking to get me in an interesting vantage point.
