Greetings from Glacier National Park

We can’t imagine not visiting this place every year. We discover something new each time we are here. Look what we found waiting at the top of the Grinnell Glacier Overlook trail – 2 glacial pools.

You can’t beat this kind of getaway. Let’s work to protect it!

Sincerely,
KC
