In addition to forming the rigid layers of the terrain, the glaciers have also helped in the formation of the mosaic-like rocks and minerals that exist in the present-day wildlife sanctuary. Years of snow and rain have also contributed to the erosion of the sediments, thus affecting the geological development…

Throughout the summer, we were given days off, and we chose to use these days by further exploring Montana. We went on several hikes, including a ten mile round trip hike in Glacier…
