Glacier National Park

Crown of the Continent

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 25th (Wed), explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stroll through Avalanche Lake and then take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road.
