You’ll Never Forget Your Visit To The Crown Jewel Of Montana
It’s the place we never get tired of visiting, the spot that draws thousands of visitors to our state every year (who promptly realize how lucky we are to live here). Glacier National Park is, without a doubt, the Crown Jewel of the Treasure State. And these are some of the reasons we love it so much.
Glacier National Park is one of North America’s few remaining intact ecosystems.
It's truly a natural wonder.
Glacier's lakes are incredible, and some of them are nationally known.
This is Lake McDonald, one of the most photographed parts of the park.
Lake McDonald is especially well known for the colored pebbles that line the banks of it.
It's even more beautiful to see in person.
If you enjoy camping, there's no better place on the planet to pitch a tent.
Even those who don't enjoy camping tend to convert to happy campers after a night sleeping under these stars.
And speaking of stars, seeing the Northern Lights from Glacier is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Even if you'd rather not camp, during the spring and summer, you can stay in one of the local hotels or lodges.
This is the Belton Chalet, which dates back to 1932.
The hiking trails here are legendary.
This is a view from the incredible Grinnell Glacier Trail, which runs about 9 miles in length. You'll find trails for all skill levels throughout the park.
And then there's Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of the most scenic drives in the country.
If you'd rather leave the driving to someone else, you can book yourself a seat on a Red Bus Tour.
Glacier National Park is a truly incredible place. Here are some
facts you might not know about it.
