One of my favorite parks so far has been Yosemite. Glacier looks pretty amazing. It will definitely get added to the list of must sees.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, May 28, 2015: Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, Montana

Brings back some wonderful memories! The Going to the Sun Road is one of North America's most spectacular drives. But it does get very crowded in the summer, so take your time and drink in that beautiful scenery! Glacier NP joins Waterton NP in Canada to form an International Peace Park and these two parks together are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Awesome pictures. I was in Waterton Park in the early 80s with work in early May before the season opened. The town site had dozens of mountain sheep everywhere. It was so beautiful and peaceful. We were about the only people other then residents there. Must certainly do another trip down that way and go across into Glacier Park as well. Thanks.

It is shocking to see how much of the glacier is gone, but what is left is beautiful and your photos illustrate wonderfully its beauty.

Hi Garry, if you came in the mid of Canadian winter, the glacier ice field will look no difference to rest of the country . So, walk on the glacier ice under the hot summer sun is much more thrill! Yes, during last visit, we were told that the Columbia Ice Field glacier is receding.
