Nikki Delventhal Features Glacier National Park in Montana
One of the most unusual lifestyle vloggers on YouTube has made her way through the State of Montana and took a trip to Glacier National Park, featuring it on her travel channel. Nikki Delventhal uploaded her trip through the park on September 16th.
Nikki is a former Miss Connecticut contestant, New York Jets cheerleader and was a contestant in season 19 of The Bachelor. Surprisingly, that isn't the most interesting part of her story; since 2019 she has been living in her Toyota Prius, travelling the country and working remotely. Her dog Camper, who she found as a stray while hiking in New Mexico also lives in the Prius with her, and is almost as popular as she is.
Nikki's Trip Through Glacier
After spending some time in Bozeman, Delventhal took the east route to Glacier to avoid the newly-introduced permits for using Going To The Sun Road, instead opting to enter the park using Chief Mountain International Highway. Like most national parks, Glacier does not allow dogs on trails, so she left Camper with a friend to record her visit to the park.
Delventhal took a hike through what looks like Middle Waterton Lake, and took a polar plunge in the icy waters. From the looks of things, it's still icy even in the summer!
Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that the footage was recorded in early August, as the smoke we've been dealing with due to wildfires in Idaho and Montana was not present. She also spent the night at the West Glacier KOA before continuing to hike Sun Point Nature Trail on St. Mary Lake.
After an encounter with a fox on the trail that was likely accustomed to hikers feeding it, Delventhal urged her viewers (as well as all visitors to state and national parks) to exercise "leave no trace" ethics; pick up after yourself and don't feed any wildlife no matter the circumstance.
We cannot stress this enough...do NOT feed wildlife in parks. Mother Nature knows best.
The full video of her experience is below. It's great to see Glacier National Park and the stunning beauty of Montana shown to such a large audience, and in a way that encourages responsibility during visits.
