I have organised a taxi to collect us from the Amtrak station and he is there waiting for us. This is the first thing to be thankful for this evening. It is 10.30, and the town is almost deserted. He delivers us to Glacier Under Canvas, around five miles away. We find a note containing a map, and a lantern outside the reception tent. It is pitch black but for tiny solar lights stuck into the ground. Here is the second thing to be eternally thankful for this evening....the ...

After our trip through Glacier we returned to camp and did something we haven't done yet...we sat in the sun and enjoyed all it's warmth, then we went for a swim and soaked in the jacuzzi. Heaven!
I know that there are a lot of photos today, but I just couldn't make up my mind. Sorry. ...
