Glacier National Park Loses Two More GlaciersBy Rocky Thompson on April 15th, 2010
Next month Glacier National Park will celebrate its centennial. Rumor has it that President Taft’s cryogenically frozen head will be thawed for the occasion of commemorating his national park. Whether his head is unfrozen now or at the bicentennial, he’ll find Glacier with fewer glaciers. Two of the park’s 37 named glaciers shrunk to smaller than 25 acres. This is the size that scientists speculate they stop moving, and in essence, being glaciers. By the time the bicentennial rolls around we’ll be lucky to have any left at all.
