TABLE OF CONTENTS
Montana Waterfalls seem to be mostly concentrated in the Rocky Mountains, and in our experience, that pretty much meant Glacier National Park and its vicinity. In this state, things just feel different. We shared the road with lots of cows on the 89, the "Crown of the Continent" was always within sight to the west, and even legendary basketball coach Phil Jackson spends his off seasons in his ranch here.
But of course, Glacier National Park was the main reason why we visited the state, and for us, it was a great way to get reacquainted with America's National Parks, which was something we hadn't really done in earnest for several years. For it was here that we saw towering mountains backing dramatic lakes like St Mary Lake, Two Medicine Lake, and Swiftcurrent Lake.
We also saw some endangered glaciers like the Jackson Glacier as well as getting that feeling that we were at the top of North America somewhere as we made it all the way up to Logan Pass. We even saw some wildlife like the elusive moose as well as evidence of grizzly activity (though we didn't get to see one in person).
And nestled amongst all this natural goodness, waterfalls as dramatic as Apikuni Falls
, as unusual as Running Eagle Falls
, and as intimate as Baring Falls
could be experienced. Not to mention all the towering cascades you're bound to see while both cruising and hiking through the park.
Finally, we were royally bummed that the Going-to-the-Sun Road cutting through the heart of Glacier National Park was closed for road construction during our visit, but I guess that'll mean we'll have to come back at another time and hopefully see what we had missed the first time around!
