These last two semesters of college have been a doozy, but I feel hopeful that soon I will resume my venture hyena lifestyle. My confidence stems from the fact that the other day I accepted a summer position at Yellowstone National Park! In light of this amazing news, here are a couple quick snapshots of that side of the country from my last summer trip.
Big Sky Country – what a view to wake up to.. (Glacier NP, MT)
The rest of the day never fails to disappoint, either (Glacier NP, MT).
Look out for posts from South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana starting in late May. Woohoo!
I feel sort of like a high-class vagabond sometimes, jumping from group to group of travelling family and friends. After making my way to Seattle to join Brianna for a road trip up and down the West Coast, I took a bus to Pasco, WA to hop in the car with some relatives driving north to Montana. This wagon train was headed for Glacier National Park. On the agenda was hiking, hiking and more hiking. I was a happy camper (pun intended).

The beauty of Glacier is paradoxical. Fantastic views greet the eyes in all directions, and it’s hard to tell where one incredible landscape ends and another begins. The infinities between each scene made framing photos a struggle. However, I took a few shots in the dark. Or more appropriately, in the light.

Grinnell Glacier Hike at Many Glacier
I can’t wait to return for some longer hikes. For inspiring views and a healthy dose of fresh air and exercise (and huckleberry ice cream, pie, caramel, syrup, licorice, or whatever else suits your fancy), Glacier National Park is the place to be.
