Glacier National Park Virtual Field Trip
The Glacier National Park Virtual Field Trip was created in 1999 by Karen A. Lemke and uses photographs, topographic and geomorphic maps, volcanic ash, streamflow, and other data to construct an understanding of the landscape traversed on this virtual "trip."
Students answer interpretive questions, draw a topographic profile and keep a field journal while on the "trip."
