Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is often referred to as the Crown of the Continent – waters from Glacier flow into the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and Hudson’s Bay. Glacier National Park is very important ecologically.   Glacier National Park is part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park which was created in 1932 by the United States and Canadian Governments.  It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This year, as part of our summer trip we are very excited to be heading to Glacier National Park for a few days.  National Park Services has a wonderful website on preparing for your trip,  where to go, where to stay and things to do.   As part of our preparation I also found information on the Banff and Beyond Blog  that offers great tips on visiting Glacier National Park, things to see and do and things to consider when planning your vacation.

Don’t forget to look into getting your America the Beautiful Pass if you are planning on visiting more than a few National Parks in the next year.  It could save you a lot of money!
