Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park ©
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Virginia Falls and Swiftcurrent Lake. Get outdoors at St. Mary Lake and Trail of the Cedars. Change things up with these side-trips from Glacier National Park: Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram) and River Rafting & Tubing (in West Glacier). Spend the 8th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Spend the 12th (Tue) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's still lots to do: hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, admire the sheer force of Running Eagle Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Iceberg Lake.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park holiday website .

Expect a daytime high around 72°F in June, and nighttime lows around 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
