  1. ….and what a lovely view you’ve got, Terry. Makes you realise how lucky you are to live in such a beautiful, wilderness area in the U.S.

    But I suppose every place all over the world has it’s beauty. Its all in the mind and how much we look around and appreciate what we’ve got 🙂

    • Yes, and I thoroughly appreciate the ready access I have to the wilderness and It’s pretty obvious that I am drawn to it. I could never leave it.

      You are right that there is beauty to be found just about everywhere, and it may well be the attitude with which we perceive things. There are also very ugly things (to our typical way of thinking) and I choose not to dwell on it. That can remain in the domain of the news media.

  2. The Clark Fork is one of the prettiest rivers I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen it a lot as it meanders back and forth under the highway so many times).

    • The smoke has not been too bad at my house, but the east end of the valley has been full of it.

  6. So nice to have that kind of view so close to you. We have to drive a little to get similar views but I’m still grateful they’re fairly close.

    • I remember those drives. We made hundreds of them and were very glad it was possible. We lived always in the east valley and our trips usually were toward the Payson area and above the rim there. We loved the Young Highway. If you haven’t seen it, it’s well worth a trip.

    • I live at the far west end of that valley and have many years of history there, from visiting my grandparents ranch there in the 40’s and 50’s to living where I now have for 25 years.

  10. You post pictures like this, and soon Montana will be overrun. 😉

    • I selfishly hope it won’t be too much overrun, but it is a beautiful place with a lot of wild country and open spaces.
