Rookie - 10 Points (1955 / Montgomery, Alabama)

Glistening Glaciers - Poem by JOHNNY COBB

A trip to Glacier National Park
Reveals a landscape of ice and snow.
Has northern Montana really changed
Since 10,000 years ago?

Less than fifty glistening glaciers remain.
Hike in the remote wilderness with care.
Dip your bare feet in an ice-blue lake.
Might see mountain goats or grizzly bear.

Historic Lodges at the waters edge
Alpine meadows, snow banks and water falls.
Pull out the map and chart your hiking trails.
Do you think you can visit them all?

On top of the world at Logan Pass
Straddling the windy Continental Divide.
Skim the blue waters of Saint Mary's Lake.
Take a Going-To-The-Sun red Jammer ride.

Crystal clear waters flow through the park.
Sunlight fights to reach the forest floor.
One visit to this World Heritage Site
And you can't wait to return to see more.
