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.
Step off the beaten path and head to McDonald Creek and Fishercap Lake. Escape the urban bustle at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park and Goat Lick Overlook. Step out of Glacier National Park with an excursion to Home Ranch Bottoms in Polebridge--about 48 minutes away. Spend the 14th (Thu) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Iceberg Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Baring Falls, hike along Siyeh Pass, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Cracker Lake Hike.

Expect a daytime high around 46°F in March, and nighttime lows around 25°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
