Glacier National Park in Canada is a wholly different park. The part of the US Glacier National Park that is north of the border is called Waterton Lakes National Park I believe.

Yeah, "National Park bordering Canada" would be more accurate. The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park consists of (the US) Glacier National Park and (the Canadian) Waterton Lakes National Park. The (Canadian) Glacier National Park is 250 miles north-west, up near Banff.

My biggest disappointment during a driving tour of the western US was Glacier National Park. It was beautiful with lots of mountains, lakes, and waterfalls, (and the terrifying Going-to-the-Sun Road where RVs take their half out of the middle leaving one to pray the car won't be forced off the road into the canyon far below) but I was expecting to see lots of big glaciers close up. There are only a few left - we could see a small portion of one high up in the mountains through a viewing scope - and, sadly, most are expected to be gone in another ten years. I wonder if they'll change the name of the park then to Melted Ice National Park?

Why wasn't the company called Copperhead? That would have made more sense. Probably why they went out of business...

Actually, I always thought the Anaconda Company was in Anaconda, Montana, or perhaps at least started there. Thus the name.
