Columbines (Aquilegia flavescens) are popular wildflowers in the Rocky Mountains and may be white, yellow, red or blue.
The Highline Trail begins at Logan Pass, the highest point on Going-to-The-Sun Road, and traverses the mountainside on its 7.6 mi (12 km) journey down to Granite Park Chalet. It provides continual spectacular, sweeping panorama views of the surrounding mountains. Mt. Oberlin is one of these mountains on the Highline Trail.
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.
