Glacier National Park, known as the "Crown of the Continent," is a stunningly beautiful mountain landscape adorned with glaciers and snowfields. Combined with its sister park, Waterton Lakes Park in southern Alberta, the two become Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. These wild places are the realm of the grizzly and the mountain goat, along with the diminutive pika and delicate, yet exceptionally hardy, wildflowers that put on a dazzling display in the short season between the months of snow.

As a media professional for over thirty years, Amy Grisak shares her passion for the outdoors through her writing, radio, pod-casts, and video projects. Her career began with her decade-long work as everything from bait to associate producer for National Geographic Television where many of the assignments involved looking for grizzlies and mountain lions instead of avoiding them. Although following these apex predators was exhilarating and educational, Amy still geeks out over nearly every flower, bird, and butterfly, and don’t even get her started on pikas. She lives in Great Falls, Montana.
