Cleveland is the tallest peek listed at 10,466 feet more than one hundred other summits rise above 8,000 feet. About 60 million years ago, Earth’s crust began to shift the rock layers began to crack and break • One rock plate slid over another rock plate. The rock plates pilled up and formed mountains. Glaciers help shape the land. People have explored in Glacier National Park for thousands of years American Indians lived in the park for 10,000 years ago. David Thompson was the first European American to record what he saw at Glacier National Park. Glacier National park has many lakes and waterfalls. The park has hundreds of lakes thousands of water falls and more than 700 miles of waterways Running Eagle falls is one of the hundreds of water falls in Glacier National Park. Canada's Waterton Lakes and Glacier National Park shares the border between the United States and Canada. There are many rocks and minerals in Glacier National Park. Rocks and soil under the water slowly harden into thick layers of sandstone, mudstone and limestone. The ancient rocks of the sea belt that our mountains have much less limestone and fewer mudstone. The varied colors of the rock in the mountains, including the red green and maroons are the result of small amounts of various iron minerals.
