    Snow Saucer Coulee as seen from the air. I would love to know how such a perfect bowl was formed in these limestone mountains.

      Good shot! That formation is known as a "Cirque." Here's an explanation on how they are formed.

      You're welcome. Thanks for the map location. That's near one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, Glacier National Park. I went on a hike to Avalanche lake in GNP, which was also in a cirque like the one in your photo above.

      A crater perhaps?
