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.
Take a break from the city and head to Goat Lick Overlook and Iceberg Lake Trail. Change things up with a short trip to Home Ranch Bottoms in Polebridge (about 48 minutes away). Spend the 24th (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trail of the Cedars, trek along Swiftcurrent Lake, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in September, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
