So far, all of my comments (all three of them!) have been from Montana bloggers. So, in honor of Montana bloggers, today is a good day to post some of my favorite mountain pictures from my most recent visit to the Big Sky state.
We visited MT the first week of November. We left home early in the morning on a Saturday and stayed overnight in Fargo, ND. The second day (Sunday) we drove the rest of the way. We were only in MT for a week, and I came to the conclusion that one week is way too short when you need two days to drive there and two days to drive back. We left Friday morning to allow an extra day before going back to work.
We spent about half the remaining four days in Bozeman (where Laura's family is) and half in Missoula (her favorite town).
This was also my first vacation with a digital camera, and I admit I went a little nuts. I think I took at least 200 pictures...since I have mountains on my mind today, I chose 6 of my favorites...
Enough talk...here are the pics...
The Crazy Mountains, seen from a rest stop, just outside of Big Timber.
View from the Target parking lot in Bozeman...You have to love a place with this sort of view from the Target parking lot after all...
From a rest stop on our way to Missoula.
In Missoula, at the corner of Higgins and Broadway. The mountain with the big "M" on it is Mt. Sentinel (the M is for the University of Montana, which is at the base of the mountain).
Not sure what street this is, but I like the shot of the mountains at the end of the street.
Last one, back in Bozeman again, view from gas station as we're getting ready to head home in the early morning.
