The Wild West: Life in Montana, as Seen by a Park Ranger and Her Camera [PHOTOS]

Imagine if your office wasn’t confined by walls and windows, but rather mountains and lakes. That’s what Becca Alfafara’s workplace looks like. As a National Park Service park ranger, she works and lives in Montana’s Glacier National Park, a place of rugged and stunning landscapes.

To Alfafara, the wilderness is at the same time phenomenal and humbling. She explains to Instagram:

There is something really wild about hearing wolves howling or knowing that a grizzly bear is sharing the same trail as you. These large animals help me realize that I’m not the top of the food chain or the biggest thing out there.

With such beauty in her backyard, Alfafara can’t help but take photos of the magnificent Montana wilderness to share with the world through Instagram. With more than 20,000 followers, this park ranger is making serious waves with her Wild West pictures.
