I realize that I've just dated myself by referencing TLC in a blog post title, but I don't care. When it comes to our national parks, chasing waterfalls is a must.

Luckily, waterfalls are everywhere in and around Glacier National Park: along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, at the end of beautiful hikes, cascading down a stone wall on the side of the highway. The abundance never gets old, either. You'd think we'd tire of seeing fresh, frigid water streaming from melting snow fields or roaring through massive rock walls.

Nope.

Can you spot the water flowing from the snowfield? Just one of the many waterfalls we spotted from the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Stunning.

Stunning.

Haystack Falls is a beauty, but seeing the water rush under the Going-to-the-Sun Road made me appreciate just how amazing the road really is.

I'll be sharing more about my favorite waterfall hike of the trip next week. If you're planning a trip to Glacier National Park, my advice is to see as many as possible. It won't get old. I promise.
