USA 2012, Glacier National Park.

The foreground looks like the alpine meadows at Logan Pass.  However, the peaks in the background are not peaks that you can see that close from Logan Pass. The photo looks like it must be an artists rendition and a compilation of several places, put together. The Stoney Indian Peaks are the sharp peaks located on the right side of the stamp.
