Located in Montana and with over three million visitors a year, Glacier National Park encompasses more than 16,000 square miles of largely wilderness area and is known for its seemingly endless acres of rugged and breathtaking landscapes. Beyond the park’s natural beauty, Glacier National Park has 350 locations in the park that are on the National Register of Historic Places.
As part of the Crown of the Continent ecosystem, the park includes 175 named mountains, 762 lakes (130 named lakes), 200+ named waterfalls and 25 named glaciers, as well as 1000 plant species, and hundreds of animal species.
The various work locations are incredibly diverse – there’s Cedar Creek Lodge, Village Inn, Lake McDonald Lodge, the Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins which is surrounded by mountain peaks; the remote Many Glacier Hotel which feels like a Swiss Alps ski lodge, Swift Current Motor Inn, and the tiny Two Medicine camp store which is very remote and tucked away in its own little corner of the park.
