|view atop St. Mary's glacier|
before packing it in and heading back to Denver we had a day on the road including a stop and short hike up St. Mary's Glacier where the snow is soft as powder and the views don't get any sweeter. just as lightning storm struck we crested the top and took in one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments before heading back down. at the base stood one of the many ghostly remains of a burned out dream of a quaint life in the desperate mountains of Colorado.
back on the road we hit up sulphur hot springs and soaked away any stress in 23 pools of element rich boiling hot water. the sensation was incredible especially with a chicken sandwich from Mini's Restaurant. 2 spry old ladies manned the station cooking us up a great meal and sending us happily on our way.
|i dug the original sign - most likely straight out of the 50's|
overall, a solid vacation in the books and I hope you all can enjoy a glimpse into a majestic land with endless boundaries. i encourage all to get up, and explore. "you are now free to move about the country."
