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 Jackson Glacier Overlook and Fishercap Lake. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Garden Wall and Apikuni Falls. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's much more to do: appreciate the views at Logan Pass, contemplate the waterfront views at McDonald Creek, admire the sheer force of Baring Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.
