To answer yesterday’s question, the photo was taken at Glacier National Park. Here’s another one of my favorite photos of GNP – bear grass along the Grinnell Glacier hike. See my blog post about our Glacier National Park vacation last year.
I couldn’t think of a more fitting photo to celebrate Earth Day than from one of the most beautiful places on earth – Glacier National Park.
I just got back from a family vacation to Glacier National Park! We flew to Seattle and took an Amtrak train to the park. I’ve traveled a bit and seen many beautiful places, but I think Glacier is the most underrated national park in the US. It’s so unique because of the way the colorful mountains were formed by glaciers, along with all the wildlife and flora. It saddens me to think that the glaciers will be gone by 2020, mostly due to global warming. We got so lucky with temperatures in the 70s, clear skies, and almost no wind. Today it was 105 degrees in Kansas City; I already miss it!
