Glacier National Park was our first overnight stop on our week-long road trip and was well worth the stop. Wildlife a plenty including bears and marmots, the latter of which I had never seen before. We hiked the Hermit Trail, a steep, no non-sense hike up into the mountains, which provided outstanding views of surrounding peaks and abundant glaciers. We stayed at the Illecillewaet Campground which I also highly recommend.

I did the great glacier trail and it was just beautiful. Walking in the near of the water and the trail is very tight, but that makes it so nice there. I can just recommend that to everyone. And 6,5 km (round-trip) are not too long

Up behind the GNP Discovery Cetre is the Connaught Creek drainage which gives access to simple, challenging and complex avalanche terrain. The skin or snowshoe up to Balu Pass, there is a gentle grade but with considerable exposure to overhead hazards and major avalanche paths at times. The ski back down Connaught Creek is tame but if you switch back up some of the aspects are very entertaining skiing. Check the forecast, prepare accordingly and bring a buddy. Be safe!

Amazing park!!! With a lot of sights to see and explore, we drove through it and atop in many places. It's amazing in any seasons, all offering their own distinctive beauty.

It doesn't matter if you're visiting Canada or born and raised here, everyone should be exploring our National Parks. We live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and Glacier National Park is a large contributor to that beauty.

Absolutely breathtaking scenery around this area (Roger's Pass).. probably one of the prettiest places in the mountains as there are tons of waterfalls, lakes, neat tunnels, and you're very high up in the mountains. Was looking forward to getting some pictures of the abandoned Glacier Park Lodge, but sadly found it to be all fenced off, either under construction or being demolished.
