Pictures by the sign, Logan Pass. The Continental Divide. We can't go further east today, the road is blocked from here. We start to climb the hill, and see a meadow there, with grassy paths, and people hiking out across, some stairsteps there, going up the hill, another peak, I find a sunny rock and sit down with my camera there, Andrew wanders up the paths and down. I am sitting on top of the world, I think. I love this place, and Andrew loves it too.
When Matt and I were here in June 2001, snow was everywhere, and rain was pouring down. We never got beyond the parking lot, where we ate yesterday's pizza in the car, laughing at our shivering hands, trying to get cold pizza to our mouths. And now, October 2006, Andrew and I explore the meadow, the smell of summer's golden grasses in the air, while scattered purple flowers put on their last show.
