The Backbone of the World
The Blackfoot Indians have called Glacier the backbone of the world. When you see the sheer, rugged peaks rising in vertical walls 4,000 feet above alpine lakes, you will know why. Glacier has some of the most dramatic mountain scenery of anywhere in the United States. Glacier has over 700 miles of amazing trails that explore the diverse and wild landscape. Glacier is not only rich in scenery, but also in animal life. Grizzly bears and gray wolfs co-exists with the hundreds of other animal species like moose and mountain goats.
