Greetings from Glacier National Park

This photo is of my mother and myself in Glacier National Park on just one of our Many trips to the wonderful U.S. National Parks, Monuments, and Forests along the Continnental divide from Glacier all the way down to Escalante. My mother was 76 in this photo. She lives in Wisconsin but traveled West every summer in her little camper. I live in NYC and in 1994 was inticed to join her. She introduced me to the Love of the American Western Wildreness; the mountains, the backroads, the forests, the local people and events. Almost every summer between 1994 and 2009 we have traveled together and become dear friends, as well as avid Nautre lovers, hikers and campers.Thank you for our National Parks and public lands! Their beauty is a real blessing!

Sincerely,
Belinda
