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.
Get outdoors at Running Eagle Falls and Virginia Falls. Explore hidden gems such as Swiftcurrent Lake and Iceberg Lake Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Glacier National Park side-trips: River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier), Bigfork (Kehoe's Agate Shop & Jewel Basin Hiking Area) and Willow's HuckleberryLand (in Hungry Horse). Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Spend the 18th (Sun) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along St. Mary Lake, cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, hike along Highline Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
