Along the northern shore of Lake McDonald, the alpine grassland gives way to an abrupt transition to the Howe Ridge Mountains. This section of the Rocky Mountains was once a low lying plain. About 75 million years ago massive movement of the Lewis Overthrust Fault propelled the huge bed of rock skyward. These large scale mountains uplifted and slid eastward and stopped here at Glacier National Park.
