Just back from my first visit to Glacier National Park late last night, and a much-needed break from phone and email. A bit of practicing what I preach and getting out in nature. My husband and I soaked up the scenery and...the rain. Our first day there was summer-like, sunny and 80 degrees, but that all changed overnight. Our second day was wet, windy and cold. I have never seen weather change as fast as it does here in Montana. You really just have to roll with it and be prepared; our bags included both summer and wintery clothing. One of the items in my bag was the Athleta Dipper Pant, which I wore on our 13-mile day hike to Glacier's Cracker Lake. The hike was so breathtaking that wind, rain, and sleet didn't deter us. And I think I owe a big thank you to my Dipper pants as well, which kept me warm and dry. My husband was amazed at how they shed water. I rinsed them out and wore them the next day too. Like everything from Athleta, they are versatile, perform well, and look good. Even after a six-hour, 13 mile, super wet and muddy hike. Pictures coming soon, meanwhile check out the Dipper and the rest of the new Athleta fall lineup for some retail therapy.
