Montana is by far one of the most stunning places I have ever been. Full of incredible scenery and wildlife, it really is one of a kind. While the entire state is postcard-esque, there are a few spots in particular that I highly recommend checking out.
Many Glacier – Glacier National Park
Many Glacier was by far my favorite area of Glacier National Park. The landscapes were like nothing I had ever seen. From enormous mountains to crystal clear waters, everywhere you turn is like a dream. This also happens to be where you find Grinnell Glacier, a spectacular hike that I also like to refer to as the stairway to Heaven! That being said, Many Glacier is also full of active wildlife. With wildlife like this, safety measures are HIGHLY recommended. Bear spray is absolutely essential! Read my last Montana blog post to see why I am emphasizing this.
St. Mary & Virginia Falls – Glacier National Park
The hike to St. Mary Falls was relatively easy and beautiful. We thought those were impressive until we continued up to Virginia Falls, where we were completely blown away! This hike does not disappoint. Be prepared to get a little wet when you reach Virginia Falls!
Who would have thought that such an open area consisting of almost NOTHING could be something so incredible? Wide open spaces galore here! The downside was a lack of cell service. However, the views were spectacular and allowed for endless photo opportunities.
