Purple Mountains

The peaceful purple Swan Mountains lie beneath a forbidding layer of clouds moving or the Flathead Valley in northwestern Montana as the sun sets. This peaceful scene belies the tremendous forces and upheavals that were responsible for the creation of this landscape on the North American continent some 100 to 125 million years ago.

North Fork

The North Fork of the Flathead River originates in British Columbia, Canada, and flows 153 miles (246 Km) south through Montana in the United States. It is one of only four rivers in Montana to bear the designation of Wild and Scenic. As it flows south from the Canadian border it forms the western boundary of Glacier National Park.

Bowman Lake

Bowman Lake is one of the large outflow lakes in Glacier National Park that provide evidence of the areas glacial past. While most of the glaciers are gone, the evidence of their erosional work clear stands out.
