Artist's description:

This is an image of Grinnell Glacier, from an overlook off of the Highline Trail along the Continental Divide in Glacier National Park, Montana. Beyond the glacier lies Swiftcurrent Valley. Highline trail is a long but relatively level trail that starts out at Lookout Pass and runs 7.6 miles along the continental divide, until it reaches Granite Park Chalet, where it turns and meanders 4 miles down to "The Loop", a large hairpin curve on Going to the Sun Road. Not for those afraid of heights - at times the trail is only a couple of feet wide with a sheer drop of hundreds of feet, the trail is consistently rated one of the top 5 in the nation for its scenic views. Mountain goats, bighorn sheep, deer, black bears and grizzly bears can commonly be found along the trail.

Glacier National Park is home to 26 glaciers, which are melting at an average of about 39% per year. (Some have been reduced by 85% in the last 50 years.) Glaciers are defined as a field of ice that exceeds 25 acres. In the early 1900's, the park had 150 glaciers that passed this benchmark.
