It is always fun to get away from home at times. I live a high stress life, which is not always enjoyable for me. But it is not really something that is going to change very soon, so I seek out ways to help me to cope in the middle of it.
Every summer, for the last four years, we volunteer at a beautiful camp in the middle of the mountains just outside East Glacier in Montana. It is rustic, by many people’s standards, but for me, it feels a little like going home. It has the conveniences that I wish I had when we lived without electricity. The generator is set up to the run the camp when needed, but is only on for brief moments and about an hour in the evening.
I love technology, but I also hate it at the same time. My job and how I make money is linked to it, so I cannot live without it, but I love being away from it all.
When I do not have to work and have the stress of daily life pounding on me, I get a lot of reading done!
The view from the cabin. We were up near the tree line, so most of the mountains were below us as well.
My little bedroom set up and ready for reading and napping.
One of the daily skits! Each cabin put on a skit as well..
Singing time is always exuberant!
One of the many meals we prepared!
Saying goodbye to the last camper before we headed out of camp!
If you ever want a great camp experience or volunteer experience, this is a good one!
