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.
Spend the 10th (Mon) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, and explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road.
