St. Mary Lake is the second largest lake in Glacier National Park, Montana, USA, created by a widening of the St. Mary River. Located on the east side of the park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road parallels the lake along its north shore. Here, the great plains end and the Rocky Mountains begin in an abrupt five thousand foot (1,500 m) altitude change, with Little Chief Mountain posing a formidable southern flank above the west end of the lake. The lake is 9.9 miles (15.9 km) long and three hundred feet (100 m) deep. During the winter, the lake often is frozen completely over with ice up to four feet (1 m) thick.
