Glacier National Park Eastern Slope of the Rockies

Winter has arrived in Montana, and this photo from the Glacier National Park Facebook Page serves to remind me just how fortunate we are to live in such a safe and natural environment here.  It may be colder than some parts of the country but our hearts are warm.  Merry Christmas.

Hot Air Balloon on Halloween in Missoula

This is an unusual site for Missoula.  After all, we are not Albuquerque.  The wind was calm and the air cold.  I could hear the balloon continuing to fire up the heat, but it neither rose nor fell, and, with virtually no wind to move it along, it finally set down, perhaps for a potty break.

Lolo Peak Montana Autumn Color

Looking at Mormon Peak and Lolo Peak from the Bitterroot River in Autumn Color.  Sun is near setting.  I thought the colors and the clouds made this a pretty good photo.

Panoramic View of Missoula University of Montana campus

I don't usually share videos on this site, but here is a 30-second panoramic view of the University of Montana campus taken from the "M" on Mount Sentinel adjacent to the Missoula campus.  The "M" is a concrete landmark, very large, constructed by university students many years ago. I will include a photo after the video.

Glacier National Park 2012 Snowplowing Album

I love this photo because it really shows some perspective on just how much snow needs to be moved off the Going to the Sun Road before it can open to the public.  The road is usually open all the way through the Park by the end of June, but that is not always the case.  This photo is from the Park's 2012 Snowplowing Album.

University of Montana Campus from Mount Sentinel

This is one of my favorite views of the University of Montana campus in Missoula.  In the foreground is Main Hall.  The University District is distinctive in its tree-lined boulevards.

I took this photo in 2008, from Mount Sentinel, about five legs up the "M" Trail.
