Glacier National Park Commemorates 100 Years
This month Glacier National Park in northern Montana commemorates its 100th anniversary. Breathtaking scenery and wildlife abound in the park that clearly deserves its designation as the “Crown on the Continent.” Visitors never fail to be amazed at the abundance of pristine, unspoiled wilderness within the park’s borders. Travel along the amazing 52-mile long Going-to-the-Sun Road that literally hangs off the edge of the mountains and provides unbeatable views as it brings you from one side of the park to the other.
Take a trip to Montana this year and enjoy the scenery that others have enjoyed for the past century. Special events and displays are planned to celebrate the centennial. You may want to consider taking your photography to new heights while you enjoy the park with its many opportunities to shoot sweeping landscapes, mountain wildflowers, thundering waterfalls and magnificent sunrises.
