Glacier National Park General: 44 reviews and 49 photos

Favorite thing: Whenever you come upon a bosky clearing, always note that bear and deer commonly traipse through the same glades you are using. Throughout the park, area creeks and mountain streams appear ideally suited to some of the largest animals in the park, including moose and grizzly. Though the two giants might with some predictability appear in preferred habitats throughout its confines, Glacier is crisscrossed with countless rivers and streams that provide sedges and water for all the mammals here, large and small. Never glance at a beautiful landscape or river valley without scanning the banks and the treeline for the sudden appearance or retreat of the local wildlife.
