How To Have A Good Day

One thing I’ve learned recently in my life, and especially during these past few months, is how important the start of your day is.

My mom and I decided we wanted to get out a bit and do something we wouldn’t normally do (avoid unintentionally spending way too much money), so I looked up some national parks near us and came across Great Falls. With traffic, our drive was a bit longer than we wanted, but on a good day it should’ve only taken us about an hour and a couple minutes to get there. While the drive took more time than we expected, the surrounding areas were beautiful and we got to see the rain slowly turn into snow which had both of us all amped up! However, we didn’t really have many warm clothing options (thanks FL) to really set us up for success on a whole hiking expedition, so sadly I didn’t get to see as much of the park as I wanted to.
