NABSQNO 12U-326239-5374334. Running Eagle Natural Bridge is a very young waterfall natural bridge eroded through Altyn limestone by Two Medicine Creek. Because water flows over the lintel when the creek is running heavy, it is not always evident that there is a natural arch here. The photo above, taken during a period of low water flow, shows the water emerging from under the lintel. According to Vreeland, the arch has a span of 15 feet. Vreeland listed the arch in his catalog as number 19-34.
Running Eagle Natural Bridge is located in Glacier National Park, Glacier County, Montana. It is named for Running Eagle, the only woman to become a war chief of the Blackfeet Indians. It is best viewed in morning sunlight.
