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 28th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, explore the striking landscape at Jackson Glacier Overlook, take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, and trek along Grinnell Glacier.
