So I decided to compile all my favorite pictures from our vacation into one place. This was such an amazing vacation spent with family and it was just what I needed before heading off to school next month. We went to 3 different national parks (Grand Canyon, Zion, and Glacier), and visited family along the way. It was wonderful and honestly it has been sad to be back to reality. Some of these pictures are just to be funny, but others I’m really happy how they came out and were able to show the beauty of these places. Being completely in nature and distant from the world of social media for a short time was just what I needed, and I can’t wait to go back to the mountains. I hope you enjoy!
P.S. If you care a lot about looking at them in full quality, you can click on the picture and it’ll look better. But that’s also a lot of work for every picture so I’m just letting you know in case you haven’t done anything all day and want to suddenly do lots of work. lol!
I call this, “sam’s-tent-selfies”

John got pooped on by a bird.
This tree was shaped so weirdly perfect for sitting on.
Hike up to Grinnell Glacier
Lower Grinnell Lake
This is the creeper pic we got of “Trader Joe”. He was this legit mountain man that had homemade trekking poles.
Many Glacier Lodge
Hidden Lake Trail
This place reminded me of the Garden of Eden.
We had to walk up that, which is much steeper than it looks. I also wasn’t wearing hiking boots, so it was even harder for me people!
Brown bear cubs at the base of the tree.
Last picture of the trip. It was so sad to leave.
