Glacier National Park is a national park located in the U.S.
state of Montana, on the Canada–United States border with the Canadian
provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. The park encompasses over 1 million

Rocky Mountains), over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of
plants and hundreds of species of animals. This vast pristine ecosystem is the

Ecosystem", a region of protected land encompassing 16,000 square miles
