It should come as no surprise to anyone by now, considering the number of times I’ve shared the view, that I honestly believe that the view from Apgar Mountain in Glacier National Park is one of the most breathtaking views in Montana. That is saying a lot since Montana is a beautiful state.
Glaciers formed the park and continue to do so. The rugged beauty is phenomenal. I understand that many people may not be able to visit Glacier in the spring, at least not now. So I have a treat if you have about 11 minutes of your time to spare.
Here is a YouTube video of Glacier in the spring. This is part of a series of videos from About Amazing Places on Our Planet. This video does a great job of capturing a lot of beauty. There are many images of Lake McDonald, which Apgar Mountain overlooks, as well as many other lakes and a few waterfalls. There are also images of wildlife, from hoary marmots to mountain goats to bighorn sheep.
This is one of the best ways to experience the park if you can’t do so in person, at least briefly, though the smells and sounds of the adventure are lacking. For people who are undecided in regard to whether they actually want to visit the park, if this video doesn’t instill a desire to see it for themselves, it is probable that nothing will. Sit back and enjoy.
