Glacier National Park is surely in globetrotter’s choice, but the recent degradation of nature, due to the industrial development, alarms the extinction of the glaciers by 2030.
There is a long-term study, which indicates that the famous ice fields which inspired the name of Glacier National Park are now shrinking. The research predicts that there are 25 named glaciers which are likely will be disappeared by 2030.
Glacier National Park has the plenty of natural beauties, which inspire the tourists to stay there. The blue-green Lake McDonald,9 miles long, is the centre of attraction of the Glacier National Park. It is one of the picturesque valleys of the West. There is another attraction in this national park is the Many Glacier.
Here the visitors can see the mountains, glistening glaciers, abundant wildlife, including moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and grizzly bears. Lauren Newman Alley, a spokesperson for Glacier National Park, said the wildlife often surprises visitors the most. But this environmental degradation and the climate change will not brighten the natural wonders of Glacier National Park. The wildlife in Glacier National Park makes everything even more amazing.
In addition to the wildlife watching and the bird watching, the most popular diversion of Glacier National Park is driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road. It is a 50-mile long way, stretched with concrete roads that winds and switchbacks its way past waterfalls, up and over the Continental Divide. Along the way, Rockies at Logan Pass, the park’s tallest point at 6,646 feet is one of the wellknow destinations and it is best for nature photography.
