Yesterday buried under a fresh coat of snow, today a new optimism.

Thanks to the knowledge and skill of a brilliant orthopedic surgeon and his surgery team, an excellent hospital staff and the ongoing effort of a superb physical therapist, I will, in a few more months, be able to again visit places like those in the above photos. For the technology and the people who make it all work I am very thankful!

I am very grateful also for all of the good wishes and encouragement from all of you who have visited and participated in my blog. It has meant very much to me. Thank all of you!

I’m now able to sit at the computer for more than a couple of minutes at a time and will be able to slowly begin responding and visiting all of you again and resume posting on Montana Outdoors. I expect that it will be into July before I can post new photos taken on any new forays into Montana’s wild places, but there are plenty of un-used photos in my library that I will post in the interim.
