Glacier National Park, the world’s first International Peace Park (celebrating the friendship between the US and Canada) offers some of the most breathtaking terrain in the lower 48 states--due largely in part to its landscape carved by glaciers (there are 26 in the park today) but also because the park straddles the continental divide. Not only does this mean that water draining to the west flows into the Pacific Ocean and to the east into the Atlantic, but it also has a big impact on weather. Weather categorized as extreme is common in this neck of the woods.
Officially bestowed National Park status in 1910, Glacier encompasses over 1,000,000 acres of land. The vast majority remains untouched by man, offering a primitive experience to those who venture out. Over 700 miles of hiking trails live in Glacier National Park as do approximately 71 species of mammals.
If hiking isn’t your thing, you can take in one of the most scenic cruises around on Going to the Sun Road. In fact, even if you like hiking you should still take this road.
Featuring 50 miles of scenic views that include cascading waterfalls, mammoth glaciers, deep blue lakes, and rugged mountain peaks, it is a must-see.
