WEST GLACIER, Mont. — Glacier National Park officials last week announced park visitation numbers for July 2010 are the second highest July in park history. An estimated 673,359 people passed through the entrance gates — an 11.5 percent increase over 2009 visitation numbers for the same month, reports the Great Falls Tribune.
The only July with greater visitation numbers was in 1983, when an estimated 689,489 people came to Glacier.
Glacier Superintendent Chas Cartwright told the Great Falls Tribune, “We are overwhelmed that so many people are choosing to spend their vacation in Glacier this summer.”
