Lake Frances Falls
   Glacier County, Montana, United States

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
The melt stream from the Dixon Glacier falls over 1,500 feet in a single, long horsetail-style waterfall - starting as a free-fall and then reverting to a long steep series of veils, slides and miniature steps - which terminates almost directly in Lake Francis (the base of the falls should be considered to be about 100 vertical feet above the lake). The falls don't seem to have a terribly significant volume for most of the year, but flow well throughout the summer months when the area is accessible.
