Artist's Description

11/5/10 – Featured in the ALL PARKS Group.
11/5/10 – Featured in the PACIFIC NORTHWEST Group.

This was taken in Autumn of 2009 as we were driving through Glacier National Park, Montana (USA). These peaks were created as part of the Lewis and Clark Overthrust, when cataclysmic forces pushed the lower Precambrian rock up and over the Cretaceous strata, forming the rugged peaks of the Montana branch of the Rocky Mountains. You can see the tilted layers of rock and a hanging valley that was carved by glaciers. Unfortunately, the glaciers in this park have almost disappeared. Photos taken in the early part of the 20th century show that they have shrunk down to less than 20 percent of their former size and many others have completely disappeared.

Photo taken September 24, 2009, near the head of Lake MacDonald (Glacier National Park, Montana, USA), with a Nikon CoolPix P80 camera. This photo is available in our stock gallery at deviantart.
