Experiencing Glacier National Park, Week One

This is Glacier Park Lodge, where we are staying part of the week.

This week is the first week of Nurturing Faith’s 2017 Glacier National Park Experiences in Montana.

Established as a national park in 1910, Glacier is named after the high mountain glaciers that are found throughout the park … or were.

Due to climate change, the number and size of glaciers have decreased dramatically. In 1850 some 150 glaciers were to be found in what would one day become Glacier National Park.

Glacier National Park is known for towering peaks and fields of wildflowers.

Today, a mere 25 active glaciers remain in the park.

This week our group of 21 will explore glaciers, lakes, trails and historic lodges in the mountains and valleys of Glacier.

If you’re not among the Glacier adventurers this week or next, never fear — there is a future Nurturing Faith Experience waiting for you.
