Sometimes leaving home for the first time can be difficult. This week’s retreat is the mountains of southern Montana and the northern gateway to Yellowstone National Park. A long-term visitor to the Retreat will be spending the summer there away from family and friends working. Fortunately, the area affords a great chance for walks, hikes, and meditating on nature. The National Park system in the United States is excellent for this not only in this area but other parts of the country as well.
