There are many reasons Kathy Petrino loves to write about her extensive travel itinerary, but none are more important than her desire to teach people how to have the best visits possible to her favorite haunts, thus making them thrive, so she can visit again and again. Of course, Kathy also would like for those who read her blog to make fewer of the missteps she has made on the same trips because she’s generous. One of Kathy Petrino’s favorite destinations is Glacier National Park in Montana.

Located right on the Canadian border, Glacier National Park is often referred to as "America's Switzerland, in part because ” as the area was once known, is home to some of the most beautiful features anywhere, including meadows, mountains, and lakes full of more than a thousand species of plants. Hikers will find hundreds of miles of trails in Glacier National Park, while those who just want to enjoy the scenery will find Red Jammer buses and wooden tour boats to help them take in the gorgeous scenery. Whatever you do, make sure you experience this vast pristine ecosystem at the center of the "Crown of the Continent Ecosystem," a 16,000 square mileregion of protected land.
