How Glacier Mountains Formed

When Glacier mountains formed they started with just a plain old flat surface with grass and dirt , also with two techtonic plates underground. The plates were separated next to each other until one plate started to go under the other plate, having the plates start to form a mountain. It took a couple of days for the mountain to form fully. After the plates did their job others did theirs, by making other mountains. And that is how Glacier National Park was formed.
