Glacier Country is home to Glacier National Park. This uncrowded wilderness wonderland is blessed with some of the world's most beautiful scenery with its 1.4 milliona cers of rugged landscape sculptured eons ago by slow moving glaciers. The park is home to 131 named lakes, and 700 smaller ones, with Lake McDonald and St. Mary lakes being the largest. Towering mountain ranges, numerous waterfalls, thousands of plant species, and abudant wildlife such as bears, wolves, deer, squirrels, big horn, sheep and mountain goats all combine to make this an unforgettable paradise.
