At the elevation of 6,680 feet (2036 meters), a roadside sign in Montana, USA, marks Logan Pass in the Continental Divide, which is the line that divides the flow of water between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. Rain or snow that drains into rivers on the eastern side of this Great Divide flows toward the Atlantic, while precipitation on the western side drains and flows toward the Pacific. The North American portion of the divide runs mostly along the crest of the Rocky Mountains.

At the elevation of 6, 680 feet (2036 meters), a roadside sign in Montana, USA, marks Logan Pass in the Continental Divide, which is the line that divides the flow of water between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. Rain or snow that drains into rivers on the eastern side of this Great Divide flows toward the Atlantic, while precipitation on the western side drains and flows toward the Pacific. The North American portion of this watershed runs mostly along the crest of the Rocky Mountains from Alaska down through western Canada, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico into Mexico. The pass is located in Glacier National Park and named after Major Willian R. Logan, the park's first superintendent.
