Finally the group reached the top. Straight ahead was a remnant Arctic scene. Grinnell Glacier was full of cracks and large chunks of ice. Some icebergs were floating in a small lake. A waterfall splashed down from Salamander Glacier above it . . .
Join the Parkers, an intrepid family of four, as they head north to Montana’s beautiful Glacier National Park. The family enjoys views of cascading waterfalls, uniquely sculpted mountains, glimmering glaciers, and beautifully colored waters. But Glacier’s alpine scenery is under threat due to climate change, persistent summer fires, and area drought. Will smoke and flames thwart the family’s vacation plans?
