A Snowy Day at Snow Pass – Yellowstone National Park

Whenever I’m away from home too long, I get a serious case of Yellowstone withdrawal. Because I grew up so close, I visited the park at least twice a year from the time I was too young to remember. Since I’ve been away, Yellowstone is always one of the main places I ended up missing.… Continue reading A Snowy Day at Snow Pass – Yellowstone National Park

Diana’s Best of 2018

I know, I know. Another one of those pesky end-of-the-year lists. You’ve probably already read 1000 of them. But as a lover of lists and perpetual list-maker, I can’t pass up the opportunity to hop on the bandwagon once again this year. While my 2017 list was a summary of a somewhat low key travel… Continue reading Diana’s Best of 2018

El Hoompo de Boofalo

Madison Buffalo Jump State Park – or, as Pat called it in a failed attempt to speak Spanish, 'El Hoompo de Boofalo' – is located near Three Forks, Montana, 7 miles (11 km) off I-90 on a gravel road.

Gold Rush! – Bannack State Park, Montana

When people find out I’m from Montana, I’ve come to expect a certain variety of questions: Do I ride horses? Have I ever shot a gun? Do I own cowboy boots? Did I grow up on a farm? And – sometimes – do we have cell phones and internet way out there? The answers: no,… Continue reading Gold Rush! – Bannack State Park, Montana

My mom and sister had previously hiked to Beehive Basin and very much enjoyed it, so we decided… Continue reading Under the Big Sky – Beehive Basin, Montana

My Own Back Yard – Bozeman, Montana

Bozeman sucks. It’s horrible. It was a terrible place to grow up and I don’t know why anyone would ever want to live there. I’m kidding, of course. Bozeman is an incredible town and I’m so thankful to have grown up in such a wonderful place. What does suck, though, is that everyone else is… Continue reading My Own Back Yard – Bozeman, Montana

An Impromptu Swim – Glacier National Park, Montana (part VII)

Are you sick of reading about Glacier yet? No? Good, because I never really get sick of talking about it. Lucky for me, Pat really wants to go to Glacier and has been enjoying reading these posts and listening to me plan our future trip that’s probably at least 2 years down the road. I… Continue reading An Impromptu Swim – Glacier National Park, Montana (part VII)
