Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja coccinea) is a very common flower in the Rocky Mountains. Interestingly, though they can photosynthesize, they also have the ability to sequester nutrients from perennial grasses. 

 

Waterton – Glacier International Peace Park straddles the USA – Canadian border at Montana, USA, and Alberta, Canada, and is a World Heritage Site. Glacier National Park features stunning turquoise glacial lakes and sculpted mountain peaks of unique magenta, blue, green and yellow rock. The valleys and mountain slopes are abundant with wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush, Glacier Lily, Beargrass and Monkeyflower. The area also supports many large animals such as grizzly bears, moose, bighorn sheep, elk, mountain goats and wolves.

 

In 1850 Glacier National Park had 150 glaciers, but due to global warming, only 25 glaciers remain today. Scientific projections predict that all of Glacier’s glaciers could disappear somewhere between 2030 and roughly 2200, depending upon what actions we take or fail to take now.
