Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park, Montana
Glacier National Park in northwest Montana stretches to and crosses the Canadian border. At one time there were 154 glaciers--thus the name--today there are less than 25 due to global warming.
In the summer one can take the road to the sky and traverse the whole park. In the winter the road is closed by many feet of snow. Huge vistas, many lakes, moutain goats, Dahl sheep, occasional Grizzley bears are found all over the park. Many hiking trails dot the park, and it is not unusual to encounter some or all of these animals. We came upon two yearling bears feasting on grubs not 50 meters from the trail we were hiking. Obviously you are not supposed to stop--but we did long enough to get a picture.
Visit soon--the glaciers will be gone in a decade if things don't change.
