Death at Glacier park in newspaper
There is no pretend in the wild, unspoiled places (prayers for the Family)


Kalispell, MT hotel Lobby
This is the real deal – wild, untamed country – not a movie


In 1973 the first taste of Glacier National Park as a 14-year old, on a three-week Boy Scout, cross-country bus trip.

In 1980, the first back-country overnight camping hike in Glacier. The month prior, a hiker was killed by a Grizzly bear.

Last week, a return to Glacier with Family, as a Dad.

Someone’s child (21-years young and full of life for sure) died from a fall while simply hiking on a trail.

Discovering a favorite place defines us.

Need more time to think about this…
