Wow. That's what I have to say about Montana. It was beauty beyond words, so I won't try much to describe it. That's why I took a million photos, after all! There is something about breathing in deeply the clean air, a refreshing that just can't be found in a small city like Nashville. There's not many buildings or cars, and the towns are small, remote, quaint, and quite old fashioned. Just our style.
Our family stayed in Big Fork for a wedding. Us gals had fun exploring the town (the main street was ironically "Electric Avenue") and the men went fly fishing. Danny caught several! Our stay was right on a small lake with sailboats, paddle boarders, and bridge-jumping teenage boys. The wedding, however, seemed to be smack dab in the middle of a forrest! I stood on the edge of the perfectly manicured lawn, to where it became perfectly WILD and overgrown, and just stared off for what seemed like ages. I was lost deep in thought, but I also really wanted to see a moose. Didn't see one this trip.
We took a day trip to Glacier National Park. Lots of driving on windy cliffs (holding my breath, and my stomach!), and stopping out for hikes and photos. The wind was fierce and our cheeks stayed flush amidst our smiles.
The drive was pretty steady, aside from waiting for a small pack of mountain goats to cross the road!
More to come... see you soon for part two!
