Glacier National Park was officially established on this day in 1910 by an act of the United States Congress. Located in northwestern Montana right along the Canadian border, Glacier National Park encompasses over one million acres, making it the twelfth-largest American national park. Glacier National Park’s environment still remains pristine, its natural landmarks including two mountain ranges, over 130 lakes and a thriving ecosystem of plants and animals. An Archaeology Enthusiast’s dream, Glacier National Park is home to some of the oldest fossils on Earth, as its vast mountain ranges began forming more than 170 million years ago.

“Wander here a whole summer, if you can… Thousands of God’s wild blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go uncounted.” —
