Truth be told, I never gave Glacier National Park much thought before my last visit here.
Maybe that’s because it just doesn’t get talked about as much as Yosemite National Park or the Grand Canyon but the thought of exploring this off-the-beaten place in Northern Montana just didn’t cross my mind…
And what a bummer that was because holy freakin’ moly, when Dan and I spontaneously decided to visit this wondrous place on our drive back home to Minnesota from Washington State, we had no idea what sort of treat we were in for!
We visited Glacier National Park in the fall and wow, the immeasurable beauty this place delivers still blows my mind.
I’m talking towering mountains and cascading waterfalls; never-ending roads winding through forests filled with vibrant hues of yellow, orange, and red; snow-capped summits just begging you for a climb, and hiking trails leading off into neverland where you’ll come across lively wildlife, such as elk, moose, and deer.
It’s something out of a fairytale.
I’ll never forget driving along the Going-to-the-Sun Road (seriously — that’s what it is called!) and craning my head, trying to get a glance at the snowy mountain tops peeking out through the thick clouds.
Or Dan and I heading out on a 8-mile hike through the wilderness, only to find ourselves in one of the most beautiful valleys I’ve ever seen — featuring a gorgeous waterfall tumbling into a crystal clear lake surrounded by soaring mountains.
And I thought Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada was fantastic.
(Hint: it is but wow, if you can’t visit Canada, this is the next best option in the United States!)
Anyways, if those 2 fantastic photos or lengthy descriptions of what it’s like visiting Glacier National Park haven’t convinced you to plan a future trip here, maybe these 30 photos will!
