Glacier Park Boat Company begins tours on May 19
Ribbons of cedar curl up and fly off of Tyrel Johnson’s wood planer as he shapes the plank destined to keep the DeSmet, an 84-year-old wooden boat, afloat on Lake McDonald. Johnson, as well as his crewmembers Clint Metzler and Pete Avery, work at an angle in the historic boathouse here at Fish Creek on April 26, backlit by a door that opens to the lake’s clear, cold water and Glacier National Park’s stunning mountain scenery.
