If you’ve seen the film “A River Runs Through It,” you’ve admired the spectacular mountains and sparkling rivers in and around Glacier National Park already, but nothing can replace an experience in the flesh. An unmediated view of the dramatic landscape is a view of the sublime, located, conveniently enough, in central Montana. What else is there to see? A dozen large lakes and 700 small ones, 200 waterfalls dispersed throughout the park, mountains shaped by glaciers in the last ice age, a multitude of seasonal wildflowers, three climatic zones with their own flora and fauna, several species of endangered animals, 260 species of birds, and 700 miles of hiking trails. We’re taking a breath while we put the finishing touches on our list of accommodations for your visit. Book a solar-powered residence or a mountain-top retreat for your summer getaway to one of the country’s best-documented and least-visited destinations.
