Glacier National Park encompasses over 1 million acres. During our quick visit to Glacier National Park we did not have a chance to see even close to a million acres of the park but we did hit a few of our favorite spots. These are some of our favorite photos from Glacier National Park.
This gorgeous lake is off of a dirt road and well worth visiting.
Lake McDonald is one of the first main sites you see when you enter into Glacier National Park from West Glacier. The lake is huge! Each time we have visited we have found great places to take pictures of the lake and viewed wildlife right near the lake.
Going to the Sun road is one of the highlights of any visit to Glacier National Park. The road is quite the adventure and you never know what you will see along the way. The road does not normally open until the middle to end of June due to the amount of snow that covers the road. Even in July there were huge berms of snow on the sides of the road.
There are 70 species of mammals in Glacier National Park. There are also 260 bird species that spend time in Glacier National Park. We were lucky enough to see a bear cross the road right in front of us as we were driving down the Going to the Sun Road.
Right before the top of Going to the Sun road there is a pull out and each time we have been to Glacier National Park we have been able to see Mountain goats hanging out in this area. They are near the parking lot and trails and super easy to get pictures of.
This sign was up in a store and made me giggle.
Glacier National Park is one of our favorite national parks to visit. There is so much to see and do in the park that a few days just did not feel like enough time. I can’t wait to go back and visit the park again soon.
