Glaciers and Westerns

Moviemaking, Montana-style. Add Glacier National Park (pictured) to your summer road-trip itinerary so you can catch two of the glaciers tracked for the Oscar-buzzy doc Chasing Ice ... before they melt. nps.gov/glac

Classic Western. Experience the Tetons’ movie-worthy winter grandeur at Triangle X Ranch; the 87-year-old guest ranch lies within Grand Teton National Park and is the only park lodging open in winter. From $140; 2-night min.; trianglex.com

A new Wild West. This summer, Johnny Depp’s Lone Ranger stirs up clouds of dust in Cimarron Canyon State Park. Strike out from Taos; the park is an hour east along scenic U.S. 64. nmparks.com
