Glacier National Park

Hello Dear Readers!

As most of you would know the normal broadcasting of Art's Chili Peppers blog has been interrupted by vacation. Not to worry...she is still posting, and also has some planned guest post along the way. I was humbled that she ever thought of inviting me to do a couple of guest posts for her, and can only hope that I do justice to what I consider a beautiful blog.

It was suggested that maybe one post be about a memorable vacation, and I very quickly settled on Glacier National Park. I was born and raised in the great state of Montana, but moved away when I got married, 18 years ago. So often when we go on vacations we head back to Montana. It's not every time that we head up to Glacier, but last summer we decided to do a quick trip up there, and I just stood in awe of it's beauty.

I almost feel like when I am there I should just put my camera away, because what camera can really do this place justice?(OK...some cameras can, mine just doesn't happen to be one of those cameras.) We have lived in a handful of places around the country, and our current state is known for growing mostly flat. It moves my heart every time to return to Glacier and stand in the shadow of these majestic mountains.

We make wish lists in our house (sometimes referred to as bucket lists), and I have one wish on that list...visit every National Park. Funny thing is, I don't even know how many National Parks there are out there.
How about you...have you ever been to Glacier? What National Parks have you visited?

Kat asked if I would also leave an introduction to myself at the bottom of this post. I went ahead and pulled this description from off the sidebar of my blog, "Life's Unfolding Story". We will see you again tomorrow, when we revisit Kat's post from this summer titled, "Oh, Summer! how I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways"...with my twist of course.


  1. How lovely to see your blog again, it's been a while since I checked in and I've missed it!
    A lovely post Darcie, I've never been to Glacier, although I have a few other ones.

  2. Darcie,

    What a beautiful place to visit and definitely something in our future plans. So glad that you are a guest post while Kat is on vacation.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  3. I shall add Glacier National Park to the list of places I'd like to visit. We purchased a travel trailer a couple years ago and this looks like a beautiful place to take it! Thanks for sharing.

  4. hey Darcie,
    Lovely lovely photos!
    I may have seen this area as a little girl on one of the trips we took with my grandparents, too long ago to remember and no one to ask who was with us that trip. It is certainly worth putting on a "wish~list~to~visit" again anyway.
