Glacier National Park

— 2 nights

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 16th (Sat), hike the day away at Highline Trail. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Avalanche Lake and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald.
