Glacier National Park is open year round. Most people only know it for its beautiful Going-to-the-Sun road, but this road is only a small portion of what Glacier National Park has to offer. This year ‘the road’ as locals call it, is scheduled to be opened up completely on June 21st. There are still fabulous hikes that start close to West Glacier where the scenery is just breathtaking!

It gives you a chance to get out of your car and gaze at your beautiful surroundings, these are photographs of what you get to [...]
