Flathead Lake

Montana's Flathead Lake is one big pond of beautiful teal waters from Glacier Park's glacial silt. The Mission Mountains provide the backdrop. I need to spend more time here.....!


"Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River in the contiguous United States. With a surface area of between 191.5 sq mi (496 km2) and 197 sq mi (510 km2), Flathead Lake is slightly larger than Lake Tahoe. The lake is a remnant of the ancient inland sea, Lake Missoula of the era of the last interglacial. Flathead Lake is 27.3 mi (43.9 km) long and up to 15.5 mi (24.9 km) wide."
