So far, we've been to Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Arches, & now Glacier. I truly understand why the Kootenai & Blackfeet tribes consider this place sacred. The landscape carved by centuries of glacier activity here has left us with indescribable beauty! We spent a week here - stayed at Apgar Village, Lake McDonald Lodge & St. Mary's Lodge. I think my favorite was Lake McDonald Lodge. Don't miss taking a Red Bus tour - we took the Western Alpine Tour & loved it! We took a boat tour of Lake McDonald & the old wooden boat takes ya back in time & the views are incredible. We also took a Jeep tour with Blackfeet Outfitters into the back country to see Moose, Bear, etc. - the weather was rainy, and we only found wild horses and a lot of "free range" cattle, but our guide Alger tried very hard to find em! He made that tour for us memorable.
Don't fail to visit Many Glacier - best views of the remaining glaciers there. The hiking here is awesome & wild life is all around. This is definitely a "bucket list national park" in my opinion too!

Worth the stop! Tragic, but also awe inspiring to see the place were this epic battle of history occurred in person.

Small, but worth stopping. Some of the pictographs are hard to see. We are glad we took the time to stop.
