Glacier National Park

Only 90 miles from the ranch, Glacier is a must for any visitor to Big Sky Country.  It can be toured in a day and one can enjoy the feast of alpine lakes, sheer drop cliffs and panoramic vistas.  The drive along the Going-To-The-Sun Road over Logan Pass alone is an experience one never forgets.  Wildlife abounds within the park borders and the mountains, lakes, and historic lodge should be on everyone’s bucket list to experience.

Russell, and the legacy of art he left, a true window into a powerful era of American history.
