Grinnell Glacier is a 7.6 mile (12 km) hike from the Many Glacier Hotel and is one of the most popular walks in the Many Glacier area. Grinnell Lake is a well-loved landmark and its brilliant turquoise colors come from the glacial silt (the fine powder of stones grinding away under the movement of the glaciers) running into the lakes from the summer snow melt.
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.
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.
