This video shows all of the incredible views you will see just from riding in the tour bus around the park. If it is already so beautiful without going on the trails, can you imagine how breathtaking the views are from the top of the mountains? All of these beautiful videos were filmed with a GoPro Hero 5. GoPros are great because they are almost indestructible and take incredible videos and pictures. They are also waterproof, which is a huge bonus! This video was taken while on the Glacier National Park Red Bus Tours. Most of the tour busses they use are the original busses that were restored and have been used to give tours since the 1930’s.
In Glacier National Park, there is a very wide variety of animals that live there. You will see animals around every corner. There are many larger animals that live in the park which include, Black Bears, Moose, Elk, Bighorn sheep, White-tailed Deer, Mountain Goats, Wolves, Red Foxes, Cows, and several more. There are also many smaller mammals that live in the park such as, Raccoons, Badgers, Skunks, Rabbits, Beavers, Squirrels, Mice, Porcupines, and more. You need to be very careful when hiking on these trails because you are in bear country and you never know how they will react towards you, especially when they are with their cubs. You should always come prepared and have bear spray handy. If you have it in your backpack then you will not be able to get to it as fast as you may need it. Wearing it on a holster is always a good idea for easy access. You also need to be very careful when driving in the park at night because there are many cows that roam freely without cattle guards so they can pop up out of nowhere.
Waterfalls and Rivers
There are so many incredible waterfalls and rivers you can go see while in the park. Just be careful not to get too close because they are very powerful and could sweep you away with their strong currents.
As you can see in the clip above, the weather at Glacier National Park is very unpredictable. You could be hiking in pure sunlight one minute, then the next thing you know the fog starts rolling in and I mean literally “rolling” in. Experiencing this can be intimidating because the fog is so thick you can barely see through it.
