Glacier National Park is a beautiful and awe-inspiring place located in the Rocky Mountains of Montana. It is home to over 700 miles of trails, over 100 lakes, and two mountain ranges. On the second day of my experience of the park I went to the St Mary entrance, which is located on the eastern side of the park.
Upon arriving at the St Mary entrance, I was greeted with breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys. The park is home to an abundance of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, and mountain goats. It is not uncommon to see these animals roaming around the park, so be sure to keep a safe distance and respect their territory.
As you explore the park, you will have the opportunity to hike through the beautiful landscape, taking in the stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The park is also home to several waterfalls, including St Mary Falls, which is a must-see for any visitor.
In addition to the natural beauty of the park, there are also a number of historic sites and landmarks to visit. One of the most popular is the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is a 50-mile long road that winds through the park, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Sadly the road was not fully open during my time at the park, so I was not able to experience it all.
Overall, a visit to Glacier National Park from the St Mary entrance is an unforgettable experience that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy. So pack your bags, grab your camera, and get ready to explore one of the most beautiful and breathtaking places in the world.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
