A few more reasons why you've gotta go…
1. Going-to-the-Sun Road: This iconic stretch of highway spans 50 miles through Glacier park, around (and through) mountainsides and over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass.
2. Junior Ranger Program: Kids 12 and under can complete at least five activities in their Glacier NP activity book to become junior rangers.
3. Rising Wolf Mountain: Rising Wolf Mountain's name comes from the Blakfeet Indian's name for the mountain, "Mahkuyi-opuahsinI
" - which translates to "the way the wolf gets up."
4. The wildlife: Glacier is the only place in the continental U.S. that still has all of the predators that were present when Europeans first arrived in North America.
