Glacier and Yellowstone- Montana's National Parks
Montana is blessed with two of the most iconic National Parks in the country. Known as the "Serengeti of America", Yellowstone National Park is a premier location to view wildlife like Grizzly Bears, Wolves, Elk, and Bison. Yellowstone features the highest concentration of geysers and hot springs in the world. Attractions like Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic draw visitors from far and wide. Yellowstone is also known as a blue ribbon fishing destination, with notable rivers such as the Firehole, Madison, Yellowstone, and Lamar. Glacier National Park is known for its spectacular alpine scenery, with glaciers hanging from its jagged peaks. Located along the continental divide, the drive up Going To The Sun Road to Logan Pass is an absolute must do. The 360 degree views awe in every direction. Alpine lakes dot the landscape, and opportunities for hiking, backpacking, and climbing are plentiful. Because Glacier National Park's rivers drain such a high, cold, sterile environment, they are not famous destinations for trout fishing. That said, there are some great fishing opportunities for the savvy angler who is willing to do a bit of research or put in some miles on the trail.
