Our Backyard: Glacier National Park

Trek through grizzly terrain in Glacier National Park.

Missoula, Montana, reader Jennifer Grigg, 36, has made semiannual pilgrimages to Glacier for the past nine years. One advantage to being a local, she says: visiting in January, when crowds have disappeared and the cross-country skiing on Going-to-the-Sun road is stellar.

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, native Jared Frasier, 23, tried to impress a girl by taking her to Avalanche Lake (four miles round-trip) in June. “We ran through the snow and scared a few bears off the trail,” he says. Was she wowed? The two got married last May and visit Glacier about five times a year.
