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.
On the 16th (Sun), hike the day away at Highline Trail. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier, explore the activities along St. Mary Lake, trek along Avalanche Lake, and stroll through Swiftcurrent Falls.
