Glacier National Park
Size: 1,583 square miles
There were likely around 150 glaciers in the park when it was established a century ago. Today there are 37, and just 25 that are big enough (greater than 25 acres) to be designated active glaciers. Some scientists estimate all of them will disappear by 2030, and others predict this will happen even earlier if current climate trends persist.

The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument covers about 375,000 acres of BLM-administered public land in central Montana. These lands hold a spectacular array of plant life, wildlife, unique geological features, endless recreational opportunities and significant historical and cultural values. The rugged landscape has retained much of its unspoiled character over the centuries and, as a result, offers outstanding opportunities for solitude and dispersed recreation.
