Rising in northwest Montana, southern Alberta and British Columbia, a swath of elevated geography is cast on a colossal scale - immense, vast and dramatic. Here nature mustered many of her greatest powers to create a glorious masterpiece. Mountain building not only thrust rocks skyward, but also pushed them eastward over the prairie grass. Eventually, massive forces of ice created valley and alpine glaciers, which when set in motion shaped an uncommon landscape that now stands with the best mountain majesty on earth!
