As some of you know, about a year ago I started freelance editing and writing. It turns out that having a website to showcase your portfolio is super helpful (surprise!), so over the next few weeks I'm going to be making some significant changes to this website. You can actually see my first change already: … Continue reading Changes Coming!
I love my husband. I love him so much. Like, I would do almost anything for him. One of the things that I will not do is help him battle raccoons at 4 in the morning. Even if it’s maybe my fault that they’re there. (their…) Let’s reverse: First of all, I got married in … Continue reading Defending the Fort…Stevens
Ethan looks a lot more excited before he swings his leg over the railing, before there’s nothing but a breeze between him and the river’s surface 20 feet below. At 10 years old, he's the youngest of his crew--a gang of brothers and maybe cousins (but certainly no parents) out for an evening swim on … Continue reading Jumpers on the Belton Bridge
First of all, I'm kind of digging the name "Sun Rift." What a great word pairing. Anyways, a few weeks ago I hiked 10.3 miles, beginning about 2 miles to the east of Logan Pass. I chose it because my friend posted a photo of it the other day, and also the shuttle stops there … Continue reading Siyeh Bend to Sun Rift Gorge
In case the title of this post was too obscure, I'm going to be home in 4 days!! Based off my past adventures, here are some answers to questions I know I'm gonna get asked. Wait, you were gone? Yeah! I left May 8 and got back (or, at the moment, plan to get back) … Continue reading Home in 4 Days!!
About a month ago, I was having a not super fun time and just needed to get out and hike. My days off had consisted of thunderstorms and homesickness, so I finally decided to just do a short trail after work. I drove across the park to hike to St. Mary Falls and, just past … Continue reading Virginia Falls and St. Mary Falls
Yes, that's an emoji in my blog post title, because this trail was awesome. I first hiked this trail in 2015 with my dad and sister, Olivia. It's kind of the reason I started dreaming about Glacier and wanted to come back. It's pretty gorgeous. It also takes a while for the snow on it … Continue reading Hiking the Highline 😃
About a week and a half ago, I picked up my friend from work, Cindy, and we headed over the Going to the Sun Road with two possible destinations in mind: Grinell Glacier or Cracker Lake. We did neither of them. Instead, we decided to go to Iceberg Lake, which was in the same area … Continue reading Iceberg Lake
Today I had the day off, and since I was pretty sure I didn't work until 2 tomorrow, I thought, "Hey, I'll go for a hike on the east side of the park, camp there, and then take the Going to the Sun Road back tomorrow." Luckily I checked my schedule before I left and … Continue reading Cobalt Lake
I had yesterday off, so I decided to go to East Glacier. I decided to leave no later than 8 am, so naturally, I rolled out of West Glacier at around 10:30. Because of my late start, I figured I'd just make it a scouting trip and see what the area looked like, maybe visit … Continue reading Scenic Point at Two Medicine
