Family Time at St. Mary Campground

"Glacier National Park is the one place where I feel like we are really all together." That's what our ten-year old daughter said on the 2nd day of our 7 day trip to Glacier this August. This is our second trip to Glacier in many ways she is right. Electronics get turned off for both parents and kids, there is no work and no meetings and we really have time to do the little things together without rushing to the next activity. On this trip, our daughter not only cooked her first brat and perfected her campfire building skills. She also learned to double knot her hiking boots, use a compass, and locate the North Star. I was reminded that slowing down to her speed and being at her side while she learns new things all by herself is as valuable for me as it is to her. That could happen anywhere but it doesn’t always. The beauty of the land and freshness of the air at slows us down to Glacier speed ready to be really all together.
