Going To The Sun U Valley Glacier National Park MTGlacier National Park in MT brings many exquisite views to tourists including U-Valley mountain and land formations. Many of the valleys are characterized by their shapes in Montana. The valleys of this nature where once formed by glaciers.

The formation of U-Valleys in Montana occur when the ice melts, or thaws, where glaciers once resided. After the melting period, the valley is in the shape of a U and the area is usually littered with small boulders. The larger the glacier was originally determines the effect of the valley shape as it is today.

Tourists viewing the mountain and valley landscapes can ponder as to what transformation has occurred many years ago, even during the ice ages. The site of the U-Valleys are beautiful and stamp memories in one’s mind as to the beauty and power of nature itself.

Montana is a great place to visit and learning about its formation brings even more meaning to seeing the current landscapes. Glacier National Park offers the view of U-valleys which can be seen all around. The visuals of nature make this area one of the most popular to tourists and those desiring a unique vacation.
