Near the northwestern corner of the United States is the national wonder, Glacier National Park. A definite benefit to seasonal work is the availability to some of the most scenic areas of our country. Montana happens to be home to two of the more spectacular National Parks, Glacier and Yellowstone. These blog posts may encourage some of you who have the luxury to travel (and it is indeed a luxury) to include Montana as a vacation stop. Maybe I should write tourist literature for the state of Montana?
My friend Karla from Sacramento came to share with the exploration of Glacier Park. The photos speak for themselves! Our first two days were spent in the VERY remote village of Polebridge, MT, twenty miles from the Canadian border. During the first night of our stay, a black bear broke out the rear window of my car. There was no food in the car, but I had left my hiking boots in a white plastic bag in the rear floorboard. The bear broke into the car, took the shoes out of the bag, and left the shoes in the car having ascertained that they were not edible! Luckily the replacement of the window was not too expensive, however driving five hours back from the Park was a bit breezy. This is such an unlikely occurrence, I feel fortunate that my “bear karma” has been dispelled so easily. As a reminder to anyone traveling in wilderness areas, follow the Park safety guidelines and take bear spray!
From here I will be employed in the ski resort town of Park City, Utah. Next post from the bunny slopes! Be sure to use the “Back Button” to get the full photo views.
Best wishes for a happy autumn. Please find time to enjoy the Nature around you wherever that may be.
