Snow in July? You've got it, up in Montana's northwest next to the Canadian border. Encompassing more than 1,560m square miles of pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes, and yes glaciers (though due to climate change most have significantly shrunk, and some have disappeared altogether), the park has more than 700 miles of trails and 13 magnificent campsites; you can also get backcountry-camping permits. You can also spot wildlife; the mountain goat (pictured here) is the park's symbol, and it's also home to bighorn sheep, moose, elk, bobcats, coyotes, cougars, grizzly bears, lynxes, and of course myriad species of birds. A true nature lover's delight!
It's one of Tripatini member Henry LIo's 5 Fab, Lesser Known Places to Visit in the USA This Year.
