Favorite thing: Glacier National Park is located in the northwest part of USA and also in the northwest part of the State of Montana, right up against the 'pink' border with Canada, which has its own much smaller Waterton Lakes National Park adjoining. From the contours, you can see that this is where the flat Prairies first meet the easterly ranges of the Rocky Mountains.
The second map is a close up of the Waterton Lakes/Glacier National Park area, with the 'pink' roads showing where we drove on our 3-days in Waterton and 4-days in Glacier. We drove down from Alberta along the foothills of the Rockies entering the map at top centre with the top Yellow marker showing where we stayed in Waterton. From there it was a quick drive to the border but we took all day to reach our first accommodations at Glacier Park Lodge, the Red marker at the bottom of the map. The next day we backtracked to Many Glacier Hotel (the lower Yellow marker) and the day after that drove right across the centre of the Park and over the Continental Divide to reach Lake McDonald Lodge (Black marker). The final night in Glacier saw us returning to the eastern side where we stayed at the Rising Sun Motor Inn (White marker with dark centre) before returning to Calgary, Alberta via the prairie route up along the right side of the map. This sequence of accommodations was not of our choosing, it was what the National Park Reservation Service said was available when I booked a couple of months earlier!
