The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.

Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the waterfront views at McDonald Creek and then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.
