Glacier National Park - “Obey God Rather than Men”


Then someone came and said, “Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people.”   At that, the captain went with his officers and brought the apostles. They did not use force, because they feared that the people would stone them.
The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest.   “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”

Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

Beartooth Mountains Montana - “Bless the LORD, O my Soul’

Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind

Psalm 104:1-3

Glacier National Park - Wisdom laid the Earth's Foundation


By wisdom the Lord laid the earth's foundations;
by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the deeps were divided;
and the clouds let drop the dew.

Do Not Fear, for I am with You

 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Crossing the River When My Time Comes

"I miss seeing her face and hearing her voice and knowing she was always there close to me.   She has crossed a river from me that I must wait to cross before I see her again.  When I see a river, I will think of her."

Rock Creek

On the drive to Beartooth Scenic Highway, we stopped at one of the camp grounds along Rock Creek. The clear mountain water of Rock Creek flows along Highway 212 and through Red Lodge, Montana and it also passes through Custer National Forest.

A Wintery Heaven Beartooth Mountains

Snowy Mountains

By John Fletcher

Higher and still more high,
  Palaces made for cloud,
  Above the dingy city-roofs
  Blue-white like angels with broad wings,
  Pillars of the sky at rest
  The mountains from the great plateau

  But the world heeds them not;
  They have been here now for too long a time.
  The world makes war on them,
  Tunnels their granite cliffs,
  Splits down their shining sides,
  Plasters their cliffs with soap-advertisements,
  Destroys the lonely fragments of their peace.

  Vaster and still more vast,
  Peak after peak, pile after pile,
  Wilderness still untamed,
  To which the future is as was the past,
  Barrier spread by Gods,
  Sunning their shining foreheads,
  Barrier broken down by those who do not need
  The joy of time-resisting storm-worn stone,
  The mountains swing along
  The south horizon of the sky;
  Welcoming with wide floors of blue-green ice
  The mists that dance and drive before the sun.

John Fletcher (1886-)1950), is an American writer, was recognized as an influencial force with the Imagist, Modernism and the Agrarian Movements. His varied interests were reflected in his ownership of over 1,700 volumes, which are housed in the John Gould Fletcher Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Lake Creek Falls Bridge is located approximately 1 1/2 miles east of the Beartooth Highway's junction with the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway.  Lake Creek Bridge is one of the few remaining structures of the original road across the Beartooth Plateau.

Beartooth Front Scenic Drive

One of the main reasons for a vacation in Montana was the Beartooth Mountains and Chief Joseph Scenic Byway in Wyoming.

Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range

Within the Wild Horse Range, we saw a lot of Big Horn Sheep but only one horse far in the distance.  I read that some of the wild horses live in the desert lowlands of the range, and many of these can be seen along Highway 37 in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. We drove Highway 37 for that specific purpose of searching for the wild horses.  Because of the landscape and behavior of these horses, it is often difficult to find them. Highway 37 is a well maintained, paved highway that was easy for driving.   Big Horn Canyon Recreation Area is so large it spreads from Montana to Wyoming.   The Wild Horse Range is located in the Montana side of the park.
