Glacier National Park has tons of amazing hikes, and the Swiftcurrent Pass Hike is no exception. The trail winds through forests, across snow, and then up a rocky mountain to arrive at the Swiftcurrent peak where there is a fire tower lookout. The nature changes constantly with views of mountains, lakes, and wildlife abound. The strenuous hike to the peak yields views of the entire park from the center and a knowledgable ranger to speak with if you’re lucky!
The drive through Glacier National Park on Going-to-the-Sun Road is probably one of the most beautiful rides in the country. If you aren’t passing by waterfalls, you’re watching big horn sheep cross the road or staring out across the mountain range from the endless viewpoints or, in this case, watching the clouds gently roll over the tops of mountains at sunset while mountain goats chew at the remaining grass behind me. Glacier is a place like no other, and even just driving the park road is exhilarating in a few ways! There is so much wildlife and nature to explore in the massive park that I want to go back any chance I get.
