Glacier Na­tional Park

Canadian Wildlife - - BIGGER PICTURE -

Glacier is a land of ex­tremes and full of nat­u­ral splen­dour: deep val­leys and soar­ing peaks; leg­endary snow­falls that blan­ket lush old-growth forests; and vast, in­tri­cate cave sys­tems, in­clud­ing the lime­stone tun­nels of Nakimu Caves. It’s also steeped in cul­tural his­tory, the site of Canada’s first foray into alpin­ism (based out of the his­toric Glacier House ho­tel) and famed Rogers Pass, a short­cut through the north­ern Selkirk Moun­tains and fo­cal point for com­plet­ing Canada’s na­tion­wide rail­way and high­way.
