Um… wow.

Glacier National Park, Montana

At daybreak I set off to drive through Glacier, and I must say, hands down, most breathtaking National Park I’ve been to in the states. Wait, the Tetons are also pretty dang great. Hmmm, no favorites.

If my itinerary wasn’t so tight, I would’ve hiked some. Luckily, my entry pass is valid for a week, I’ve half a mind to go back through on my way up to Seattle.

The trip has taken some nice turns, and I am due in Lander, WY in the a.m. for a 4th of July celebration. I’ll stick around for the beginning of the following week to talk about potential evolutionary steps of the NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) web site.

They’re good folk there. Best I’ve worked with. No matter which way it goes, it’s gonna be fun this weekend.

So today was another marathon driving day. Started off in Glacier, ended up in Yellowstone. I’m actually in a small cabin just 15 miles north of the Grand Tetons. I filled up two memory cards on the camera. Took many breaks and ate an early dinner overlooking Flathead Lake just north of Missoula. Those tuna fish lunch kits kick ass.

I’m exhausted. I can’t even begin to write down everything that my eyes absorbed. I feel a bit harried, but I’m trying to smell the roses along the way. The next leg of the trip will be more relaxed in timing, so I am glad for that.

I’m glad on a bunch of levels actually. The weather and road have been kind.
