Dear Son

Legit wilderness rush lasted all day

Grinnell Glacier Hike
It was an exciting, and unexpected, encounter.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
We backed pretty far away before we got our cameras out. The zoom makes it look closer than it was.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
All of us frozen until we could determine it was safe to proceed.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
Decent distance away considering we had rounded the rock corner where the Ram is standing.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
Is it safe? What do we do if it charges?

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
Majestic. Powerful. Home field advantage.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
So yeah, we originally rounded this bend and the Ram was right in front of us.

Back to the ascent.

Just keep climbing.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
The Ram (and two others) opted to travel below the trail, allowing us to pass safely.

Looking back…far left lake is where we began the hike.

Stunning geology.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
FYI.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
At 3.5 miles one way and 1,800′ elevation gain, it wasn’t a difficult hike. Almost there.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
Used to be ocean bottom.

 

Grinnell Glacier Hike
Starting to sense something uniquely special. Nearing the trail’s end, and Grinnell Glacier’s first sighting.

 

Hikers are constantly advising hikers in the opposite direction what lies ahead.

“Hey, we saw three Mountain Goats about 300 yards down from the trail, near the waterfall.”

We joked that unless we can pet them, it probably wouldn’t excite us.

You quickly get spoiled when you have super close encounters with the bigger animals.

Grinnell Glacier has receded and will be gone by 2030 (estimated).

Plenty of available parking at 3:30PM.

 

Be receptive to whatever cards you are dealt.

In life they say, “Play the hand you’re dealt.

Forgot to do this every single day in Glacier

Church (God) is everywhere you look in Nature. Was on my knees to take this photo.

 

Forgot to do this every single day in Glacier – begin on my knees.

The upside is that nature is God’s Church, so 24/7 for seven days, i was literally on my knees with eyes (and heart) wide open.

With eyes wide open

Lake McDonald
From the room.

 

With eyes wide open can be interpreted many ways. For me it means living like you mean it.

As always, the transformational difference is in how we manifest sayings and cliches.

An entrepreneur’s life

Glacier national Park
You see a bigger picture when you are in charge of everything.

 

Since becoming a full-time entrepreneur two years ago, i know firsthand that you do see a bigger picture when you’re in charge of everything.

And all I can think of is how big a picture God sees.
