Although I’m not really caught up from my last blogging break yet (so sorry … I’ve made every effort to catch up with everyone but ran out of time), I’m about to depart for another long break.
On Saturday, the Little One and I are flying out to Montana for a week to visit my brother and undertake a very serious hiking experience (10 miles!!!) in Glacier National Park. Considering that I should have been training for the past few months instead of frittering away the time with reading and blogging, I hope I’m not the weak link and get outhiked by a 6-year-old (which is EXACTLY what my brother expects to happen).
Want to see where we will be staying while in the park?
We will be hiking 10 miles (5 miles in and 5 miles out). I won’t lie … I’m a little nervous about this. However, my brother assures me that we’ll take it easy and if we can’t finish the whole thing, we won’t.
However, I’m very motivated to reach our goal, Iceberg Lake, because the cliffs that overlook the lake were where my dad fell to his death almost two years ago. I’ve wanted to go to the site of his accident for some time. Somehow, I think that being there and seeing where he spent his last day will bring me a sense of peace and some closure. Wish me luck on the hike … and I’ll be back in a week or so.
