List of glaciers in Glacier National Park (U.S.)

I am posting this as it's important in my view
This one of the few places in America where the result of global Warming is pronounced
and there for all to see..it's still a beautiful park but for those who saw it like I did forty+ years ago they will notice the change.
This was where a bear (don't know the type) while camping at night took off with my sleeping bag
(with me in it) fortunately no harm done-but that was a good down bag. FYI you can still have the same experience today if you eat in bed..or use bag as napkin..LOL
Peace

Chaney Glacier, 2004
There are at least 35 named glaciers in Glacier National Park (U.S.). In 1850, the area now comprising the national park had 150 glaciers. There are 25 active glaciers remaining in the park today. Since the ice ages stopped 10,000 years ago, there have been many slight climate shifts causing periods of glacier growth or melt-back. The glaciers are currently being studied to see the effect of global warming[1] It is estimated that if current warming trends continue, there will be no glaciers left in the park by 2030.
