A Wonder

I had not imagined the breathtaking beauty that we would discover in Glacier National Park, Montana.  After having travelled all over the world, seeing spectacular views from the Parthenon in Greece, the ruins in Ephesus, the Pyramids in Egypt, the remains of Pompeii, the cliffs of Masada in Israel, the streets of Venice, the hillsides of Sorrento Italy, and the Vineyards of Tuscany (just to name a few)…

Glacier National Park in the good ol’ USA holds its own:)  If you have the chance to go, there is so much to do…we just scratched the surface with a 7 day stay.

This was taken at Many Glaciers.

Many Glacier is a hikers paradise, and the there are so many options for visitors no matter what “skill” level.  Trails radiate out in all directions, including two of the most popular hikes in the park, the Grinnell Glacier trail and the Iceberg Lake trail. Hikers can take a different trail every day for a week and still not cover all that the area has to offer.

Springtime brings bighorn sheep close to the road and late summer is the best time to see bears, both grizzly and black, feasting on huckleberries, which are in season then.

The next several shots below were taken from the helicopter ride we took, which I highly recommend if you visit.  The increased perspective of the width and breath of the Park can only be seen from the air.

Words really can’t describe the beauty here in Montana…and it can be seen from a kayak, raft, or boat on the many lakes and rivers…from the hundreds of trails through the forests and mountains…from the zip line in White Fish or the mountain bike trails…or from an arial view on a helicopter ride.We rafted, kayaked, zip lined, biked, floated,golfed, & hiked…I want to go back:)

In Every Home There is a Creative Bone.

In my home, creative bones come in many shapes and sizes. I believe we are all hard wired by the ultimate Creator…made in His image…able to create on many levels…like my husband who creates a beautiful outdoor haven for our home…like my oldest daughter who creates with beautiful stitches…my oldest son, who uses formulas I can’t begin to understand to create communications in space…my youngest son, who brings art to life on stage, and last but not least, my youngest daughter…who has chosen to be 3 dimensionally creative in her chosen occupation as an Entertainment designer.

We are all creative with unique forms of expression…

My chosen forms come in the way of food, mixed media and photography. The ultimate link to all of these is love. Loving others through a hearty plate, a sentiment expressed with ink and paint, or a moment of soul captured through a picture…and in this expression of love, joy is found.
