tl;dr: Depressing? Motivating? Both.
Team Nordan spent the last couple weeks of summer in three national parks – Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton. Weather and wildfires cooperated to deliver spectacular views and lots of wildlife. I came across the gal below on a trail run; her two calves were out of frame to the left.
At the outset a ranger laid out the state of play: When Glacier National Park was established in 1910, there were 150 glaciers. Now there are 25. By 2030 there are expected to be zero. When we reached the end of the hike I continued another half-mile off-trail to the glacier’s edge.
