A VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MAJESTIC GLACIER NATIONAL PARK.
Tucked into the northwestern corner of Montana and the US/Canadian border in Alberta are two majestic national parks with rich geologic, cultural, and biological histories. Glacier National Park (on the U.S. side) and the smaller Waterton Lakes National Park (in Canada) are often referred to as the Crown of the Continent’s Ecosystem. This is one of the world’s most scenic, and unique, landscapes—in fact, people as far back as the late 1800s politicked for the area to gain park status. In addition to jaw-dropping scenery, the area is home to a wildly diverse population of animals, birds, and fish. And there are towering forests, lingering glaciers, crystal clear lakes and streams.
Glacier National Park shares its northern border with Canada and Waterton Lakes National Park.
