Vacations are loaded with lessons

-A A +A
By Kirsten Peters

My finest memory from childhood is sailing a kayak my clever brother had made out of plywood and canvas.

The sailing adventure was on a lake in Glacier National Park. The wind was good, my beloved dog was tucked between my knees for ballast, and I scooted over the water like a rocket – or so it seemed to an 11-year old.  I have a black-and-white photo of that event (the world was black and white in those days) and I cherish it greatly even though it’s faded.

If you and your little ones still hope to get in a family camping trip this summer and make some memories, there’s no time to lose. With that in mind, let me tell you a bit about the geology of Glacier National. Even if you only visit it in prose, it can do your spirits good while you camp or explore nature in parks in local spots wherever you live across the nation. And what geologists have learned in Glacier National Park is helping them interpret current tectonic events in the Himalayas and the Andes.
