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!
We had a very busy 4th of July weekend, from Theatre in the Park in Shawnee, to a family celebration in Cherryvale, to hanging out in Louisburg, to the Corporate Woods fireworks display in Overland Park. There were plenty of great photo ops over the last several days. And…I’ve passed the halfway point for my 365 Day Photography Project!
Even our cat Esme wanted to see what the president had to say during the State of the Union address last night.
