Glacier National Park United States 2011 Commemorative Quarter.

The newest of the National Park Commemorative Quarters, this one for Glacier National Park in Montana is out and in circulation. This is the first one I got as change at a grocery store. Two macro images — one using ambient and incandescent light, and the other converted to B&W.
