Glacier National Park

Glacier might very well be the most beautiful of America's national parks. John Muir called it "the best care-killing scenery on the continent." The mountains are steep, snowcapped, and punctuated by stunning mountain lakes and creeks. Much of the land remains wild and pristine, a result of its remote location and the lack of visitation in the 19th century.

"Far away in northwestern Montana, hidden from view by clustering mountain peaks, lies an unmapped corner?the Crown of the Continent." --George Bird Grinnell
