Island in Lake St. Mary in Glacier

Back to Search Results

A small island in the middle of Lake St. Mary is framed by craggy, glacial peaks in Glacier National Park, a wilderness sanctuary in the  northern Rocky Mountains.  Thousands of waterfalls tumble from glacial snow  masses into lakes and streams, surrounded by primitive forests in the park measuring 1,013,598 acres.  Grizzly bear, moose, elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep--at least 57 species of mammals and 210 species of birds make the region their home.  Going to the Sun Road is a 50 mile link through the center of the park that crosses the Continental Divide.  Mount Cleveland, Glacier's highest peak, measures 10,448 feet.  Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is the official name because the area covers Canada, spilling over into Montana.
