    Where ice flowed over the tops of the mountains, it scoured the rock surfaces, rounding the mountaintops and lowering their elevations. Following on the heels of those near record snowpacks was the development in of the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area above Lakeside, giving the Flathead Watershed a second winter recreation area. Rocks composed of fine particles, such as mudstones or sandstones with red coloration, indicate a shallow-water, oxygen-rich environment, resulting in the formation of the iron-rich mineral hematite. Parker, Douglas L. Source: U.

    The large size of the Polson moraine suggests that the ice front must have remained at that position for quite a few years. Their stories are told in books and films, on trails and landscape markers. Throughout the immense span of geologic time, global plates and continents move, mountains are built and torn down, and plant and animal life-forms evolve. Glacial ice only sculpted the mountainous landscapes to fashion the spectacular craggy peaks, knife-edge ridges, and deep, U-shaped valleys evident today. The annual rainfall of

    While only scattered exposures of these younger Montana book rocks exist in most of the Flathead Watershed today, they do outcrop in the Canadian portion of the North Fork of the Flathead River and also underlie most of the area east of Waterton-Glacier National Park and the Rocky Mountain Front. These brilliant red rocks—referred to as the Grinnell, Snowslip, and Shephard formations—are common in Waterton and Glacier National Parks and the Whitefish, Swan, and Flathead ranges and are well exposed in road cuts along Highway 2 near Essex. As the North American continent moved westerly, the Pacific oceanic plate slid not-so-gracefully beneath it a process referred to as subductionrumpling and uplifting the continental edge from Alaska to Mexico.
