A Labor Day Weekend Visit to Glacier

I know better than to visit Glacier National Park before Labor Day, and especially on Labor Day weekend, but I needed the break, and overcast weather is basically nature's invitation for me to venture outdoors. I love the way the park looks after a storm (or before).

I arrived early and only stayed a couple of hours before the cars began to appear in droves, which is my clue to get the heck out of there. But for the short time I was there, I relaxed, ignored the work, writing, and myriad of other tasks I knew awaited me in my office.

I didn't get a lot of pictures because I was there to sit by the water, relax, and let the cares of the world slip away.

I do so enjoy watching the mist and clouds hover over mountain peaks.

I sat on this rocky shore while the breeze caressed my skin and carried with it the fragrant pine scent from the trees.

There was more light when I drove into the park, so when I took this on the way out, it made me think of a great murder scene for a Grey/Archard book. Even when I'm taking a break from writing, my imagination doesn't stop.

If you'd like to try historical books set in Montana, might I recommend the Montana Gallagher or Crooked Creek series. If you're looking for something a little moodier to match the landscape above, check out the new contemporary romantic suspense written under McKenna Grey and co-author, Everly Archard.
