Glacier National Park

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Home Ranch Bottoms (in Polebridge), West Glacier (River Rafting & Tubing & Apgar Lookout Trail) and Kehoe's Agate Shop (in Bigfork). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, hike along Highline Trail, explore the activities along Lake McDonald, and admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 48°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
