Glaciers, horses, a canoe and a long, long road trip..

We're at day 7 of our road trip and we're in Polson Montana, still 1000 miles from home. Ben is doing incredibly well and handling the trip with ease from moment to moment. He doesn't realize, nor care, how far we have come or how far we have to go. He's a true caveman.
Seeing the world through a child's eyes was a saying that I didn't understand until Ben came along... now it makes perfect sense. He doesn't mind traffic- rather he laughs and points at the clouds.
We have been hiking nearly every day. The few miles of running that I've done haven't been timed or measured. My 4-5 day rest is stretching in to 6-7. Soon, maybe 8.

If only we all could see through the eyes of a child. Or at least with a childs heart.

Tim, these are wonderful! It looks like you're having a great time and a great trip.

Amazing pics. Remind me of the rockies here at home.

Brfoot- Definitely.. Ben has taught me sooo much.
Wende- The trip was great. We'll have hundreds of photos to bring to your house next week! Next week? Already!!?
fatdad- Are you REALLY fat? The mountains in Glacier were similar but a little more rugged. Certainly much less traffic!

I couldn't find this the other day...found it
