Tips from real users who've been to Glacier National Park
Full of glaciers
Glacier National Park in Montana obviously if full of glaciers, but they've slipped from 150 to 27 in the past 100 years or so. However, there are still lots valleys carved by ancient glaciers that left unique shapes in the mountains of the park. The highest peaks rise to just over 3000m and the park has an area of over 4000 square kilometers full of lakes and vast coniferous forests. This is a great place for activities such as fishing, hiking, and camping in remote valleys. There are "rangers" the information center will brief you about possible meetings with Grizzlies or even cougars! Personally, I found my encounter with the white mountain goats much more reassuring!
The first time I saw Mountains.
Since I am from Pennsylvania - I have never seen an actual mountain. I stood in front of the Mountains of Montana and cried. I've never felt so small, so insignificant, so amazed. I stood in awe, and praised God for making our world so beautiful. I hiked 112 through Glacier that week and every moment left me in amazement. I took 9,543 pictures.
