What is seen in Glacier National Park today had its origins about a million
years ago--at the beginning of the Ice Age. More than 60 active glaciers
can be found in the park today...some that still move up to 30 feet a year.
The unsurpassed sights and sounds of this beautiful region are preserved for
you on this unique Video Trip.
You will travel along Going-to-the-Sun Highway and the scenic shore of Lake
McDonald, and catch glimpses of the park's wildlife in the McDonald Creek
Valley. You will continue along to the "Trail of the Cedars," and view a
massive cedar and hemlock forest. See Avalanche Lake, where you can look
back into the past and see how the tumbling glacier waters of the creek
polished and carved the stone. Travel on to Logan Pass where the elevation
is 6,664 feet and you can find summer snowfields.
Then descend past the northern shore of St. Mary's Lake on your way to Many
Glacier Lodge, the largest lodge in the park, and catch sight of some of the
most incredible views in the park. You will spend time in Waterton National
park, in Canada, and stop off at the Prince of Wales Hotel with its European
styling. Your trip will also take you to the Northern Lights Saloon, a real
backcountry lodge, on your way to Bowman and Kintla Lakes with excellent
fishing and camping areas.
Glacier offers a wide variety of recreational activities. Hiking, horseback
riding, camping, bicycling, fishing, and camping are just a few of the
adventures you can experience in glacier country!
Glacier, with its carved mountains and valleys, glacier-fed lakes and
streams, abundant wildlife, and peaceful, wet forests, is truly a place for
man to cherish and enjoy!
