snow in the parks, both blessing and burden

Some of the things we wanted to do while in Yellowstone and Glacier were just not possible because of an obstacle. Snow. In June — an anomaly for us Northeasterners. But it is a possibility in the higher elevations out West. While it was a minor annoyance that we couldn’t hike Mount Washburn in Yellowstone or drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier, we still had an incredible time. I’d rather see some relief from drought — as they’ve been experiencing in states like Wyoming and Montana — and miss out on a few sights than deny the area some much needed precipitation. How timely that the New York Times published an article about this mixed blessing, check it out here.
