Glacier NP area favorite places

Any recommendations on favorite places, people, or experiences in or around Glacier National Park?

Thanks to Forum member Betty Ford for suggesting the trip. It's beautiful up here!

We really liked Apgar Village and Fish Creek Campground. Great ranger programs at the campground as well. Many Glacier is a beautiful area as well. I wish we had more time to explore around the east side.

I second the Many Glacier area. Hungry Horse dam is worth seeing.

Re: Glacier NP area favorite places

Thanks for the tips! We played in Apgar Village the other day. Paddled the kayak on the south end of McDonald Lake. Was gorgeous to watch the sun setting over the mountains. (And if Brent from haywoodphotomaccom were there, we'd have good pictures....) The hike to Avalanche Lake was busy but beautiful. The creek rocks are a really unusual shade of sienna red. The Avalanche fire is still smoldering. We could see plumes of smoke rolling down the hill. Look forward to checking out the remote northwest corner of the park in a bit.

It's one way queue's with guide vehicle during the day and stoplights at night in multiple sections.

Re: Glacier NP area favorite places

So, we got to explore the western end of the Going to the Sun Road, up to Avalanche Lake. The middle section is closed for construction. Backpacking in the North Fork was gorgeous! Pictures will be up on the blog soon. Now we just need Brent to take some professional pictures. The place is just too beautiful to do justice with an amateur camera.
