Hey everyone! Things have been pretty hectic these past few months but I finally found some time to sit down and share some photos. I am currently sitting on the couch overlooking the Yellowstone River. I just finished my first week of work in my new job and my feet are a little sore from our hike yesterday, a perfect time to write my last blog about Glacier. This last year was awesome. I couldn't have planned it better. We had an awesome group of people to ski, bike, hike, camp, climb, boat, and hang out throughout the year all over the park. I will definitely miss the park and the community of people. I suspect that I will be back again in the near future, but until then I look forward to seeing the park through the eyes of all the people I have met these past two years.
Here are a few of the highlights of Glacier from 2016. I hope you enjoy!
