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 Going-to-the-Sun Road and Virginia Falls. There's still lots to do: stroll through Grinnell Glacier, get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, hike along Highline Trail, and appreciate the views at Logan Pass.
