Exploring Glacier National Park in Autumn

So remember how last week I told you about some of my perfect fall moments in Western Montana? Well, believe it or not, this week fall in Glacier Country got even better.

Call it lucky, blessed or fortuitous, but a few days ago I was able to visit Glacier National Park again. And fall was in fine form. Take a look…

No matter how many times I see the teal colors of the water in Glacier National Park, they never cease to wow me.

Fall may be my new favorite season inĀ Glacier National Park. Your turn: What’s YOUR favorite time of year to visit the Crown of the Continent?

PS: This Sunday (September 21) will be the last day to access Logan Pass by vehicle from the east side of Glacier National Park. Visitors can still access Logan Pass from the west side of the park until Sunday, October 19 (weather permitting).

    I was just there earlier this week for 3 days. It was so beautiful. I took many pictures to show it. If you’d like any additional shots to share, I’d be happy to!

    Great post. I will in the area at the end of October. Is there anything I can do in the park or surrounding area. Are there private tours of the park or buses? I will have a 2 year old with me.

    Thank you!

      Babette, most of the guided tours (red buses, etc.) conclude in late September. However, the National Park Service regularly offers workshops, hikes, etc. that may be of interest to you and your little one. I’d recommend stopping into the Apgar Visitor Center in the park and seeing what the rangers have planned for the week that you are here.
