Happy birthday Glacier National Park! On May 11, 1910, Glacier in Montana became the country’s 10th national park, protecting a scenic landscape of rugged peaks, clear waters and glacial-carved valleys. Here’s to celebrating 106 years and many more of caring for this special place for future generations to explore and enjoy. Photo of the Highline Trail by Tim Rains, National Park Service.
