You're following the campaigns of the 7th Cavalry, it appears.

And it looks like you're having a lot of fun.

Good for you.

Now this, this is real mountain photography! Love the stream pic.

Nice trout water.


I hope you're using sunscreen young lady.

In the hilly areas you might see a woody bush with small roundish leaves and purple/blue berries that look a lot like blueberries. These are huckleberries and are really good.

The people in Montana are some characters though, ain't they Ann?

David said...

Notice that the photos of Althouse are usually looking down the mountain. Meade sets a mean pace.

Beautiful!

He's just trying to capture cleavage, but she's not helping with those outfits.

Richard Dolan said...

What, no sidewalks? And, besides, the color scheme is way too green. Badly lit as well.

A friend of mine moved to Big Sky about 20 years ago.

Sharps Arms are in Big Timber, I thought it was Big Sky. Still a great place.

Meade. You're getting very good with that lens.

Real fish. They can't close them. I wondered about my fish because now the plants are taking over the fish have to squeeze through and they can't close their eyes and I'm thinking

Lovely country.

I remember when the train in that area was called the Empire Builder, not merely "Amtrak 7". Before the Libby Dam, the track ran along the Kootenai River. You could see all the way to the bottom. Glorious area out there.

That's a wide stance ya got there, Ann. Must be a result of the mountain country. Now do you believe Larry Craig? He was from out West, if I recall.

Now that is almost as beautiful as Wisconsin.

We can plead, beg, coerce, demand, expect some people to have the ability to take care of themselves. It won't happen, some will never, don't have the ability, brains, desire, gumption, etc to do it. They will always be our responsibility as a civilized society. We won't let poor Floyd Corkins be harmed at the hands of an angry right wing mob if we can help it.

Nice place.

I hope you didn't run into any bears or Black people.

chickelit said...

I think the notion that there are no black people in Montana is an urban legend. Unless Althouse's recent photos were staged.

Mountain air is good for your blood pressure.

I don't see why it's big sky. The view is obstructed everywhere by hills.
