Crown of the Continent

The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Glacier National Park is known for nature, scenic drive, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road, admire the sheer force of Baring Falls, admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, and explore the activities along Fishercap Lake.

Plan my Glacier National Park trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Whitefish to Glacier National Park in 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 70°F in September, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can drive to Great Falls.
