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.
Explore hidden gems such as Grinnell Lake Trail and Bullhead Lake. Get in touch with nature at Apikuni Falls and Jackson Glacier Overlook. Go for a jaunt from Glacier National Park to Polebridge to see The Polebridge Mercantile about 48 minutes away. Spend the 13th (Fri) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along McDonald Creek, head outdoors with Swiftcurrent Pass Hike, admire the sheer force of Baring Falls, and hike along Siyeh Pass.

In September, daytime highs in Glacier National Park are 70°F, while nighttime lows are 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
