This may be an only 50-mile trip but not a single miles goes by without a scenic view. The road cuts the Glacier National Park in half and it’s a National Historic Landmark. You will see forests, lakes, deep ravines, and a variety of wildlife in one trip. Don’t be intimidated by the tall mountaintops all around. But don’t look up so often because the road can get quite narrow at times. If you stop at the St. Mary Lake, the second largest in the park, you’ll be able to take startling photos of the 100-foot Virginia Falls.
