Why This Blog Died In Montana

CM and Widget deep in the woods of Glacier National Park
Two words: Pure exhaustion. At the time of my last post, we were having terrible problems getting any kind of internet signal and we were headed to Glacier National Park in Montana. Well, when we got there what we thought was a 1.5 mile hike, turned out to be a 4.5 mile hike (thank you, CM).

In case you didn’t know, it’s not a good idea to take a 3 year-old on a 4.5 mile hike! What made things worse was the fact that it was steadily uphill. I thought we were going for a scenic walk, not climbing up the side of a friggin mountain! Because we thought the trail was so short, we stuck with it because we thought, “any minute this thing is going to turn back down hill”. Once we got deep into the forest, we didn’t see any other hikers, so I really started to freak out. By the way, did I mention that there was a gigantic “Grizzly Country” sign at the trailhead?

So, I would say at about 2 miles in Midget flat out refused to walk. CM & I took turns carrying her on our shoulders up a mountain. About 3 hours later, we got to the top of the mountain. I’m not going to lie, it was soooo beautiful, but I was so out of breath and so scared that a bear was going to eat me that I didn’t enjoy it as much.

I don’t know how long our downhill trip took. We practically ran, even Midget. When we finally broke out of the trees I was so thankful. That night I intended to blog about everything that had happened. However, when we got back to the RV, we microwaved some TV dinners and we all passed out from exhaustion. I woke up in the middle of the night in terrible pain. My legs were throbbing, it hurt if I bent them, it hurt if I stretched them out. It took everything I had to not fall as I climbed down the latter to get some Tylenol. About 45 minutes later I was sound asleep.

That day started a downhill spiral for CM and I. We were constantly on the go and we never got any rest. For me, the first thing to go was the blog. Taking care of the kids and planning a trip on the go was more than enough to fill my plate.

Luckily we made it back safely, and I have so much to tell you.
