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.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Wed): contemplate the waterfront views at McDonald Creek. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, take in the dramatic scenery at St.Mary Falls, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Baring Falls.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park trip itinerary planner.
