Annie’s guest today is Expedition Leader Lindsey Nielsen, based in Coram, Montana, just outside West Glacier and the border of one of America’s most beautiful and beloved national parks. Along with its Canadian counterpart Waterton Lakes, Glacier National Park comprises the heart of a vast, intact wild ecosystem. This high-altitude region is part of the Crown of the Continent, lying along the serrated Continent Divide that forms the crest of the northern Rocky Mountains where Montana, British Columbia and Alberta meet. Naturalist guide Lindsey gives an overview of Glacier’s geology, ecology, wildlife and human history, recognizing it as the traditional home of the Blackfeet Nation who have lived inextricably with this landscape for centuries. You’ll hear the enthusiasm in Lindsey’s voice as she shares the unique joys of this place that formed her. She grew up tromping along trails through the mountains of Glacier in summer and pursuing animal tracks on skis in winter – and the magic of this place has animated her since, magic she shares with her Nat Hab guests on every foray into the park.
