Grasshopper Glacier (Montana)

★ Grasshopper Glacier (Montana)

Grasshopper Glacier is in the Beartooth Mountains, Custer National Forest, Montana, U.S. The glacier is within the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, a part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Grasshopper Glacier is approximately.20 miles long and.25 mi wide. Starting at a point more than 11.300 feet above sea level, the glacier originally was more than 5 mi long but has receded significantly since first researched in the early 20th century. As of 2007, the glacier consists of several smaller glaciers, each occupying a different north-facing cirque. Grasshopper Glacier was named for the tens of millions of grasshoppers that have been found entombed in the ice, some for hundreds and perhaps thousands of years. Many of the grasshoppers are of species that are now extinct, and their high level of preservation allowed early researchers to send some specimens to entomologists for identification. During this research it was discovered that some of the grasshoppers were of the extinct species Melanoplus spretus, known to have existed at least up to the beginning of the 20th century.

Known to travel in flocks numbering in the trillions in some years, it is believed that the grasshoppers found in the glacier may have been caught in a violent storm and died. Until the end of the 20th century, the grasshopper remains were quite common, however, lower snowfall from late 1980-ies and higher temperature contributed to higher melting rates of the glacier and many specimens decompose before they can be restored.

Access to the glacier is difficult due to bad weather conditions and requirements for driving on the road car, and then hike on foot several miles to the base of the glacier. The road is closed to 10 months of the year. The Beartooth highway US 212 is one of the closest access roads. Two small glaciers in the region have the same kind of grasshoppers turns to ice, also named Grasshopper glacier, the other is hopper glacier. Other glaciers are also known for the same reason, including one in the crazy mountains to the North / North-West of the Beartooths and glacier Grasshopper in Shoshone national forest in Wyoming.
