Montana

John Steinbeck said, “I am in love with Montana. For other states, I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love, and it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.”

 

We couldn’t agree more. Montana is home and travel for us. We love nesting in our chosen town at the Original Gateway to Yellowstone National Park. And we love traversing the state–climbing mountains, floating rivers, wandering through small towns and large ones (by Montana standards), and getting to know the people that, combined with an astounding landscape, make this state great.

 

Montana is bigger than many of the countries we visit, so there is a lot to see here.

Wilderness is American

One of the things I thought about a lot while hiking in Europe was how wild the United States is in pockets. I loved rambling through the alps and along the U.K. coast, but it wasn’t the same as walking in wilderness. Upon our return to the U.S. I was asked to write a piece …

Wild Ice Skating

In the opening to “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” Snoopy skates onto a pond and grabs the hand of a child and skates with a bunch of them in single file. He slides on the ice on his belly. The children skate in a carefree, winter wonderland, except for Charlie Brown, of course, who ends up …
