The following photographs were taken in August and September of 2016. While global warming has significantly reduced the glaciation and snowpack of Glacier National Park (Montana), there is still a great deal of snow and ice in the Canadian Rockies, although all glaciers in the parks are receding. This is well demonstrated at the Columbia Icefield, where the toe of the glacier has been marked for some 80 years. Wildlife in the parks remains abundant, although here too many species are in significant decline (caribou, moose).
