Our late afternoon hike to hidden lake at #glaciernationalpark
Hikes like this set the bar high for future nature walks. It was too much to even take in. Being behind the camera separates you from your surroundings and actually forms a barrier to your own memory. So, even though you have the picture itself sometimes you don’t have that vivid recall of the total experience. .
During this hike I made specific intentions to do my best to take it all in. I took deep breaths, felt the air all around me, how the cold from the snow made my ankles and calves a little cool, how the sun was so warm and the wind was whipping my hair in my face, how the crisp, clean air that had blown a second before over a glacier, past the mountain and over the lake then to me to breath in. I experienced it fully then snapped a quick photo. Enjoy through the screen and then book a trip to Glacier because these photos are only 1/10th of how miraculous it is to be here. ♥️
