Surprising Facts About Montana’s National Parks
You can never stop learning especially weird and fascinating facts about the wonderful national parks we have here in Montana.
MSN Lifestyle came out with a list of Surprising Facts about American's National Parks and I wanted to see if there was anything in there about Montana's two national parks. There were two facts about Yellowstone and Glacier National Park on the list and both were absolutely interesting.
First off, Yellowstone National Park's fact was pretty noticeable but maybe just to us locals. They said that Yellowstone's hot springs are so acidic that they can dissolve a human body. Yes, it's a bit morbid but they should be a fair warning to everyone visiting to be careful around the geysers, hot springs and more. Even though these spots are beautiful, they are also deadly.
Next for Glacier National Park their surprising fact is that they have the first world's international peace walk. I grew up near Glacier National Park and had no idea about this. Back in 1932 the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is part Glacier National Park and part Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada. This was a cross-border partnership for goodwill and preserve history. One of the coolest parts is that if you cross the border at Goat Haunt you can get a fun goat-shaped stamp in your passport.
I love learning quirky little facts about Montana, especially about our incredible national parks because that only adds more fun and intrigue to them. Now I have to make a triip to Glacier to get a goat-shaped stamp in my passport when the border reopens.
