Greetings from Glacier National Park

I visited Glacier National Park with five of my high school friends to attend a brilliant Master Naturalist class on the different conifers, insects, and birds that inhabit this beautiful landscape. We were able to explore both sides of the mountains that divide the park and see how much the environment is affected by local geographic features. Led by two cheerful and highly qualified nature enthusiasts, we all went on daily hikes, cooked meals, and slept in log cabins. That class was truly an incredible experience and Glacier National Park served as an irreplaceable backdrop to it all.

Sincerely,
Bryan
