As you start to ponder your vacation destinations for 2013, be sure to check out Lonely Planets Top 10 US Travel Destinations.  With so much to see and so much to do, you can’t beat Glacier National Park.

Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide book and digital media publisher, has named Glacier National Park “One of the countries wildest, most remote and pristine national parks, Glacier is everyone’s favorite national park who’s been. Its jagged, snow-blanketed ridges and glacier-sculpted horns tower dramatically over aquamarine lakes and meadows blanketed in wildflowers. Most visitors stick to the drive along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, so it’s easy to escape crowds by venturing beyond it. A relatively new shuttle system offers an eco-friendly alternative. But go soon. The park’s 25 glaciers are melting – and could be gone altogether by 2030 if current climate changes continue!”

Glacier Raft Company’s deluxe log cabins are a great base camp for exploring Glacier’s many wonders.
