It comprises two "branches" of the Rocky Mountains, about 130 lakes of various sizes. The largest and the most spectacular is Lake McDonald and Saint Mary's.
Earlier in the territory of Glacier were about 150 glaciers, but in the XX century, many of them have disappeared as a result of climate change. The region from the beginning of the XX century became a popular holiday destination. In 1910 it received the status of a national park.

As for the natural inhabitants of Glacier, it is home to dangerous grizzly bears, wolverines, mountain goats, deer, caribou, and other representatives of the fauna of the Rocky Mountains.
