part of its’ ongoing program to educate the public about the
uniqueness of the area, the Lower
Flathead Valley Community Foundation commissioned
seascape artist, Byron Pickering, to create a painting of Glacial
According to geologists, the lake was formed about 15,000 years ago
during the last ice age, when the Clark Fork River was dammed by ice
near Sandpoint, Idaho. The water was backed up almost to the
Continental Divide on the East, through the Bitterroot Valley to the
South and as far North as Polson, which was the terminus of another
tongue of the British Columbia Glacier.
The glacial ice went from over 5,000 feet thick in B.C. to
approximately a quarter of a mile deep at Polson. Periodically, the
dam broke at Sandpoint, creating tremendous floods that scoured the
scablands in the Columbia Basin and created the Columbia Gorge.
The Mission Mountain's valleys were filled with glaciers from which
large icebergs broke off as the water level fluctuated, as depicted
in Byron's painting. The paintings perspective if looking east from
the national Bison Range, approximately 1000 feet above the valley
floor, extending from Mount Harding on the left to the Mission Falls
Valley on the right. A reproduction of this painting is on a
permanent outdoor display at the Glacial Overlook.
Byron has been honored by the use of "Glacial Lake Missoula" in a
variety of articles and web illustrations, among them a 2005 feature
in Montana University's "Visions" magazine. In 2006 it was used on
the pages of the Nova Megafloods website in conjunction with the PBS
special. In 2008, it was featured in the winter edition of the Mid
Colombian Magazine, a Washington publication magazine.
