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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Iceberg Lake and Fishercap Lake. Escape the urban bustle at Logan Pass and Avalanche Lake. Spend the 16th (Thu) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: trek along Iceberg Lake Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and explore the activities along McDonald Creek.

Yakima to Glacier National Park is an approximately 7-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time is 1 hour. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Yakima in July, with highs in Glacier National Park at 85°F and lows at 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
