Glacier is also home to one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world, the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Bisecting the heart of the park, the 50 mile drive crosses the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, a great spot for a hike to photograph plants and wildlife not seen in many other parts of the U.S. The trail to Hidden Lake overlook is popular and busy, but is still a good spot to get photos of ptarmigan and mountain goats. The sub-alpine habitat at higher elevations is extremely fragile, so be sure to stay on the boardwalk or other maintained trails.
Almost every pull-out along the road provides photo ops, but my personal favorites are near the eastern end of the drive. Take the turnoff to Sun Point and walk a short distance for great views of St. Mary Lake and the surrounding peaks.
