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.
Escape the urban bustle at Grinnell Glacier and Hidden Lake. Get out of town with these interesting Glacier National Park side-trips: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram) and West Glacier (Glacier Park Rafting & Glacier Anglers). There's more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald and trek along Swiftcurrent Falls.

For traveler tips and other tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park road trip site .

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in September, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
