Weekly Newsletter – Mashley’s Adventures – Exploring Glacier National Park

(See even more photos in our FaceBook album.)

Current Location: Glacier National Park, Montana

Perhaps we all need time to be free, time to be alone in nature, supported and encouraged to discover our own wild selves, to reconnect with who we are and what we want from life.

This week, Adventure-Some is in a different state for the first time since May! We’re currently exploring Glacier National Park in western Montana, with Jackie joining us. To make the trip easier we’ve actually left Lady Galapagos (our RV) back in Bremerton and are gallivanting about in the truck this week, which allows us to explore Glacier in more depth.

Because our plan is to be out hiking just about every day this week, we assumed that internet connections would be few and far between, if available at all. As such, we actually wrote and scheduled this email a few days ago. (So we’re speaking to you from the past – Huzzah for time travel!) Fear not! The juicy details of the trip will be passed along in next week’s email.

Lessons Learned (or relearned):

  • Nature is stunning! (glow in the dark water?!)
  • People make the place
  • Homemade pizza cooked on a grill is the bomb

Last week was low on adventure as we wrapped up projects at work and prepared for this excursion and our upcoming move. Thursday we drove out to the Hood Canal after dark and stood in the water, swishing it around to agitate the phytoplankton. Once disturbed, they lit up like tiny green sparks – it was like the stars in the sky were reflected as shooting stars in the water around us. Like we’ve said before, Washington is a pretty cool place.

Bremerton Mugs!

Friday we held a grilled pizza party for friends as a thank you for such an amazing time while in Bremerton (and to let them check out the RV if they hadn’t already seen it.) We are truly thankful and amazed by the friends we’ve made! We definitely are blessed.

Adventuring away,

Matthew & Ashley
