Glacier National Park

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.
Get outdoors at Iceberg Lake Trail and Avalanche Lake. Step out of Glacier National Park to go to Polebridge and see The Polebridge Mercantile, which is approximately 48 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, trek along Grinnell Glacier, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald.

In September, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
