Comparing the past and the present

Well, it appears that I am partially reliving the life of my grandparents on my father’s side. Erin and I just went on vacation two Glacier National Park (see posts below) and we had a really good time. How this is related is that at Christmas time, we came across a number of slide reels of my grandparents that I got scanned at Costco and posted on my Flickr site. I am still trying to organize them all because somewhere in the last sixty years the order of the slides got messed up (most likely at Costco) but it is weird that in the pictures, I found a number that my grandfather took that are almost exactly the same as what I took.

For comparison, look at the picture in this post, and then look at the picture my grandfather took 50 years ago.

Our pictures from Glacier have been uploaded to our flickr site and are available for viewing. You can either view all of the pictures, or just 50 of the “top” pictures. Your choice.

While in Glacier, we did a ton of hiking including Iceberg Lake, Grinell Glacier, Highline Trail/Garden Wall, Trail of the Cedars/Avalanche Lake, Johns Lake, and Atlantic Creek Trail.  We also got to see a ton of wildlife including grizzly bears, goats, and big horn sheep. If you have any other questions, just let us know!
