Souvenirs from Glacier National Park
If I could magically give you a gift today via the internet it would be this,
To sit you down on a bench in the Trail of the Cedars,
And to fill all your senses with Glacier National Park.
You would feel the mountain sun touch your face as it trickles through the trees.
The rushing rapids would drown out any other sounds, in the air or in your heart.
You would see with your own eyes trees, mountains, rivers, lakes, snow and spring in the same hour.
And most importantly, you would fill your senses with the intoxicating smell of this place.
And breathe deeply this combination of spring, cedar, pine, damp grass and sun.
If only I could bottle this aroma and take it with me
And send some your way, because I feel certain it would cure whatever ails you.
