10 Best Things to See in Glacier National Park

10 Best Things to See in Glacier National Park

The northwestern corner of North America holds some of the most indescribable natural wonders on the continent. The one million acre park is located in the state of Montana and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. Glacier National Park was established in 1910 to preserve the natural beauty of the wild lands for future generations. While the whole park offers dramatically breathtaking vistas, these ten locations stand out from the rest.

1. Cracker Lake

The clear blue waters of Cracker Lake are set off by the towering Mount Siyeh that rises up majestically in the background. The view is simply stunning. Rock flour silt, combined with the constant low temperatures of the lake, make it a crystal clear aqua blue.

2. Chief Mountain

The unique appearance of this mountain is due to the lack of sloping as a result of the way it formed. The mountain rises 5,000 feet into the air giving the appearance of a rectangular formation from a distance. The sheer faces make this one of the most difficult mountaineering locations in the area.
