Glacier National Park named as a Top 10 Destination for 2013 by Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet's experts have compiled a list of 10 US destinations that they think travelers should add to their wish lists for the upcoming year. Making that list is none other than Glacier National Park. Although it came in at the 10th spot, Glacier is the only national park to make the list. Here's what Lonely Planet had to say about the most beautiful place in the world:
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!
Of course if you plan to take Lonely Planet up on their suggestion you'll definitely want to venture into Glacier's stunning backcountry.
