Trekking Through Glacier National Park Before The Wildfires (Video)

As the Sprague fire burns through Glacier National Park in Montana, this stunning video reminds us of the need to preserve Glacier's pristine beauty.

MONTANA - As adventure filmmaker Rob Feakins trekked through Glacier National Park, the Sprague fire had only just started. Still, he was able to capture one of the world's most stunning landscapes on video.

"The haze in this video is from the Sprague fire, which was 500 acres at the time of filming," Feakins said.

The fire has now spread to nearly 15,000 acres and is still only about 50 percent contained. The Sprague fire remains one of over 20 fires in the state of Montana alone, a plague that has ravaged much of the American West during the late summer months and threatens its natural beauty.

"No fire will ever dampen Glacier's glory," Feakins said. "This video is in tribute to Glacier, which is battling the Sprague fire."
