Today's Place to Daydream about: Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is 16,000 square miles (41,000 sq km ) of mountains, meadows and lakes on the Continental Divide, a breathtaking landscape so remote it is sometimes lonely even in our crowded age.
Home to bighorn sheep, mountain goats, grizzly bears, golden eagles, Canadian lynx, wolverines, and many other beasts and birds.
There are 700 miles of trails, some of which are only open for a few weeks at the height of summer and take you to rugged slopes high above the lakes and lodges.
Winter snows are so deep that sometimes it takes months just to plow the roads in spring, and you are advised to check the park's web site to find out what is open before you go, no matter what the season.
I haven't been to the Rockies in twenty years, and I am wishing today that I were there.
