Triple Divide Peak (Montana) - Triple Divide Peak (8,020 ft) is located in the Lewis Range, Glacier National Park. It is a hydrological apex of the North American continent, where the Great and Laurentian divides meet at the summit of the peak. Thus, all water that falls at this point can flow to the Pacific, Atlantic, or Arctic oceans, making the locale (and surrounding Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park) one of the few places on the Earth whose waters feed three oceans.
125400. Silhouettes in the mist, American bison (Bison bison) search for food in Midway Geyser Basin. Area thermal springs warm the ground and melt snow cover, making grasses and sedges more accessible than elsewhere in the frozen park. The spri ngs also discharge hot water into the nearby Firehole River, where elk and other animals find nourishment even in winter.
