Storyline

We begin at the train station near Montana's Glacier National Park, where Blackfeet Indians meet the arriving tourists. Glacier Park, an off-screen narrator tells us, has the remnants of 60 glaciers, from three ice ages. We visit the lodge, built in Swiss style, where college students dressed in Swiss garb do the serving at the restaurant. We watch Indian dancing and a ceremony. After views of lakes, mountains, and trails in the park, it's north to Canada's Waterton Lakes, a vacation spot for Canadian and U.S. families. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Glacier Park and Waterton Lakes (1942)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This here is pretty much a double-feature as James A. FitzPatrick splits this TravelTalks entry into two locations. First we visit Glacier National Park in Northern Montana where we see several folks being greeting by Blackfeet Indians before checking into a hotel that has everything modern people would want. We see other attractions including squirrels being fed and our host being made an honorary Indian. We then travel to Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada. Here we see the various waterfalls, lakes and the actual border with the U.S.. Fans of the series will find this one to be yet another pleasant entry that tells us some nice history as well as give us some great visuals. As normal we get the Technicolor that really brings things to life. It's should be noted that the glaciers are said to be able to last a thousand years from 1942 but that doesn't appear to be happening right now.
