christina shares a lot of great tips 😎
this is the final post of my national park week series sharing my personal recommendations for the parks that i have been lucky enough to call home. today’s park is glacier, where i have lived since 2018, and will continue to live for the foreseeable future. don’t forget to bookmark for future trip planning.
best months to visit: may or june for waterfalls, wildlife and biking, october for the larches, july and august if you need to drive the entire length of going to the sun road (personally, i think biking it is a much better way to experience it, especially the first time) or hike in high elevation.
best hikes: highline, grinnell glacier and hidden lake are among my favorites. invest in a @hike734
map, he has hiked all the trails in glacier and listed them in order of most scenic. i have found he is spot on.
best spots for wildlife: anywhere on the east side.
favorite campgrounds: west side- sprague creek, kintla lake, apgar. east side-many glacier, st mary, rising sun or two med. i know i just basically named them all... but it’s like choosing a favorite child, you can’t.
favorite sunrise/sunset spots: apgar boat dock, gttsr anywhere between the loop and siyeh bend - particularly logan pass and big bend, hidden lake overlook, wild goose island overlook, swiftcurrent lake, sun point, two medicine, bowman lake.. i could go on! yikes, how does one choose?
favorite restaurants: west side- la casita. east side- johnson’s -make sure to get the huckleberry ice cream pie.
and that’s all for now folks! have a great weekend!
