Mini Miracles keep Coming August 23, 2021
Happy Happenings & A Beautiful Drive East.
We got up at 6:30 AM to try to get one of the few park passes they were releasing at 7 AM today to drive through Glacier National Park this Tuesday. Without a pass, you can’t go into the park. After 3 failed tries we got through and secured a pass, and we get to drive the famous “Going-To-The-Sun Road” through Glacier. I then called a highly-rated campground right outside the West Entrance of the park and asked if by any miraculous chance, they had availability. The lady on the phone said, “Well, you must be living right because we just happen to have one spot that has come open for 2 nights”. We had back-to-back mini-miracles and were cheering as if we’d just won the lottery.
Today we drove from the misty forests of the Pacific Coast, through the VERY windy plains of central Washington, through the rich farmland of Eastern Washington (yes, that is Eli running through the field at a rest stop), and into the gorgeous lakes and woods of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to our campground with the dog on the roof. This country thrills and amazes me. It changes dramatically and quickly and you never know what you will find around the next corner. I am in love, and inspired, and ever so grateful!
