Continental Divide

The Continental Divide slices through Glacier National Park at Logan Pass.  And most interestingly, just south and east of Logan Pass is a mountain called Triple Divide Peak where, as the name implies, there is a three-way continental divide. "From Triple Divide Peak southeast of Logan Pass, a hand's width can determine whether a raindrop becomes part of the Columbia, Mississippi, or Saskatchewan river systems.  Waters from the (park) flow to the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and northeastward into Hudson Bay." From the Waterton-Glacier visitor's guide, but so well said, and so cool!
