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 Going-to-the-Sun Road. Explore Glacier National Park's surroundings by going to Meadow Lake Golf Resort (in Columbia Falls) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). Spend the 14th (Sun) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Grinnell Glacier, hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake.

In October, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 56°F, while at night they dip to 31°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
