Glacier Mountains: SkyWatch Friday

The beauty and majesty of Glacier National Park, Montana, USA  
100 years ago on May 10, 1910, Glacier became the United State's 10th national park.  Located in the Northern Rocky Mountains, native Americans called Glacier the "backbone of the world."  Encompassing more than a million acres, it is home to a great diversity of animals and plants.  In 1932, Glacier with Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park, became designated as Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.  Together, in 1995, they were recognized as a World Heritage Site.

  16. Yay! I did it!

    I have been trying to get into your blog for weeks. Every time I clicked on your link my computer would freeze up.

    I suspected the problem might be my computer and not you blog but I wasn't sure. It has actually been three blogs that have been giving me problems. I've spent half the morning making some changes including toning down my virus program and looks like something worked. Yay again!

    Love your shot of Glacier National Park, we want to get over that way this fall.
