Glacier National Park, an awe-inspiring landscape, moved the Blackfeet Indians to look upon it as holy ground.
Sharp mountain peaks were carved out by glaciers long ago. Today, the glacier count has withered to 37 named glaciers. A count during the 1800s cataloged more than 150. An
estimate sees the last of the glaciers withering by 2030. This short term warming trend has some environmentalists
concerned, but in the Earth's long history, a 250 year period is insignificant.
