I have wanted to visit Glacier National Park in Montana for most of my adult life. I finally made it on May 30, 2007. My brother met me there after taking a train west. We both were very excited. I started out being a bit disappointed because snow still blocked Going-to-the-Sun Road. The weather was gray and drizzling rain. Undeterred, we drove to Lake McDonald from the western entrance of the Park. Clouds, mist, and rain partially obscured the view. After letting the magic of this place seep into me, I finally concluded it was more interesting this way and sun would have ruined it! We were able to see both snow on the mountain tops of the Continental Divide and a green tree growing by the shore. The subtle charms of this scene still entrance me and I have it hanging on my living room wall.
