United States 2011 Commemorative Quarter:  Glacier National Park, Montana

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.
