Sheer cliffs, avalanches, turbulent rivers, cold lakes, severe weather, grizzly bears-these are just a few of the risks you may encounter in Glacier National Park. Since 1910 when the park was established, 296 people perished within Glacier's boundaries, and many more somehow survived close calls with death. Here are their true tales, as well as stories of the brave and often heroic search-and-rescue professionals who put their lives on the line so that others may live.
