Glaciers to Hoodoos

SHANE'S THOUGHTS............

sunny 82 °F

Hi everyone!!!!! Today is 9/8/09, our one month anniversary on the trip!!! First I'm going to start with Glacier NP. Since the RV was being repaired in Great Falls, Montana, we rented a car and went to Glacier in it. Because we didn't have the RV, we had to go tent camping. Also, our tent was to small for all three of us so, we had to buy another tent. When we reached Glacier, we had to find a campsite. When we found one we had to find a site suitable for us. After we found one, we set up our tent on our site and went on two or three hikes. The day after that we did some hikes, one of which I rounded a corner and found a Mountain Goat and her baby standing not 15yd away[the hike was called Hidden Lake]! The next day, we did an extreme hike called THE KRYPT in the Canadian side of Glacier. One of the obsticals was a tunnel. When I went through the tunnel, I felt slightly cold, and like Indiana Jones, only I didn't have the hat then, and my heart was beating quickly. The tunnel was small, cool, and rocky, on the edge of a steep gravelly cliff. The scariest part of THE KRYPT was when we had to hold onto a steel cable or drop 1,500ft to our sheer death. The next day we left to go pick up the RV, then started to Yellowstone NP. When we got there, we drove on a senic drive and did a hike. The other days in Yellowstone we saw geysers, like Old Faithful and we went on some other hikes. When we went to Grand Teton NP we saw elk, huge mountains, and swam in a freezing cold lake. Now, we are in Bryce Canyon NP, home of the Hoodoos, odd landforms left from erosion. They were called 'Legend People' by the local Native Americans and look like big stone, red and gray people with gray hats. SEE YA'!
