Description

When you visit Glacier National Park, rest assured that they'll be ready for you. After all, the park has been preparing for your visit for the last 800 million years. The park is the result of sedimentary rock formations that were laid down then uplifted during the formation of the Rocky Mountains. As it exists now, the park is filled with lakes, valleys, remnant glaciers and a variety of wildlife. A lot of the beauty of the park can be viewed from the car, although some of the most fun will be had by biking along the steep cliffs or hiking along the 700 miles of trails. Likewise, there are hotels nearby, but visitors who want to embrace the natural habitat of the park can camp at one of thirteen campgrounds within the park. For the truly adventurous spirit, Glacier National Park is world famous for its beautiful backcountry camping and backpacking.

This park houses some of the U.S.'s most breathtaking land. With options to hike and camp along a backcountry trail or stick to the populated campsites, Glacier National Park is accessible to both intense outdoors people and those who prefer scenery without so much adventure. Hands down a must see for all Americans, and this should be a priority to anyone visiting the states.
