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 1st (Mon): explore the activities along Avalanche Lake and then explore the activities along Lake McDonald. On your second day here, get outside with Swiftcurrent Pass Hike and then stroll through Swiftcurrent Falls.

Big Sky is a census-designated place (CDP) in Gallatin and Madison counties in southwestern Montana. On the 3rd (Wed), trek along Ousel Falls Trail, take in the awesome beauty at Lone Peak, and then fly down the slopes at Big Sky Resort.

You can drive from Glacier National Park to Big Sky in 7 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or do a combination of car and bus. Expect a bit cooler evenings in Big Sky when traveling from Glacier National Park in November, with lows around 16°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Yellowstone National Park.
