Glacier National Park, MT

"Far away in Montana, hidden from view by clustering mountain-peaks, lies an unmapped
northwestern corner- the Crown of the Continent. The water from the crusted snowdrift which caps the peak of a lofty mountain there trickles into tiny rills, which hurry along north, south, east and west, and growing to rivers, at last pour their currents into three seas. From this mountain-peak the Pacific and the Arctic oceans and the Gulf of Mexico receive each its tribute. Here is a land of striking scenery."
~ George Bird Grinnell

We are just back from the mountains ... snow capped, studded with pine trees, draped in glacier streams and water falls !

The mountains whisper is still echoing in my ears...

Still lingering is the sweet fragrance of the wild flowers blooming on the mountain tops.

Stay tuned for more posts on this place of grandeur.
