Glacier NP and Olympic NP
Does anybody have any tips on mammal watching in Glacier National Park? I know the park has some really good animals I would like to see – especially Grizzlys, which I’ve never seen. I read that Many Glacier Valley is a good place to see them.. But where? And at what times? Also on the top of the list is always a puma and either of the lynx species in the park. Black Bears would be a nice treat, but I have seen them before.. Obviously a wolverine would be awesome, and really, any carnivores besides raccoons, red foxes and coyotes. Another mammal I would like to see is a male moose.
Also, where should we stay? Rooms are running out fast.. I wanted to stay at Many Glacier lodge, but nothing available for our dates already.. So as of now I have a reservation at Glacier Park Lodge which is outside the park so I don’t know if it’s a good idea..
The other big national park we’re hitting is Olympic. Many of the similar species, but again, any help would be appreciated – especially on seeing the felines and the other carnivores.
