Medicine Owl Lake

Medicine Owl Lake as seen from the ascent up Amphitheater Mountain

Medicine Owl Lake and Peak lie high up into the Red Eagle Valley near Triple Divide Pass in Glacier National Park. In Blackfeet mythology, owls are an omen of impending death. While perhaps not an especially deadly lake or dangerous peak, the burgundy argillite surroundings contrasting with the deep blue of this high basin lake are a spectacle to behold, especially from either atop nearby Amphitheater Mountain or from the lake itself towards the 2,000 foot headwall of Amphitheater Mountain.
