Glacier National Park, MT

The 1,600-square mile park―dubbed by explorer George Bird Grinnell as “The Crown of the Continent”―Glacier National Park can let its numbers speak for themselves. The park features 185 named mountains, 762 lakes, 25 glaciers, 68 species of mammals―including black bears and grizzly bears―277 species of birds, and 700 miles of hiking trails. However, the numbers, staggering though they may be, don't do the magical scenery justice. Glacier is a must on any Western traveler's bucket list.
