...a lake in the mountains

 
"Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains...”
Diane Ackerman
 
 
...and so we are here again
the most loved place on earth
( at least in my book)
 

Our favorite swimming hole
 
~ Lake McDonald Glacier park ~
 

The water is indescribably beautiful
calm, cool and blue
 

Foghorn is ready to take the plunge
 
 

His siblings both, already in
 


Everything is just sweeter here
 


The light and warmth of the sun...the cool of the water is so completely refreshing
  recharging from the long winter
 
 
 
Kids un plugged and happy to just be
enjoying these amazing days by the lake
I hope these beautiful memories will stay with them forever
They are seared in my head and my heart
 





Life is good
really good.
 
Have a love- ly weekend.

  10. Oh my. We were married in Montana:) On top of Big Mountain in Kalispell. We were lucky enough to enjoy all of Glacier National Park then and this was one of those spots we took in. This makes me miss it so. The good news is our 20th! wedding anniversary is in only 2 short years and this is the place I want to take the family to celebrate! Thank you for sharing:)
