One day past Christmas

Snowshoeing in Salmon-Challis National Forest near Missoula, Montana, the day after Christmas. I was stopped short by this view.


It had been awhile since I’d spent more than a half-hour outdoors. So, this hike on the perimeter of the cross-country area was hugely welcome. Prior to returning to northwest Iowa, another hike into a Montana mountain canyon reinforced the notion that nothing humans create measures up to the natural world.

  1. That’s one of the most beautiful vistas I can imagine. I’m so glad you were able to make the trip, and really appreciate seeing this bit of it. Happy New Year to you and yours — I hope it’s a good one for us all.

  2. It occured to me as I was leaving a comment on this blog that you might enjoy it. Terry lives in the Montana mountains, and does some wonderful photography.

    I realized something else just now that’s amusing. Your header and menus suddenly looked familiar to me. When I clicked the magic button to see what this theme was, sure enough — it’s Penscratch, the one that I chose for my new template. Great minds design alike, I guess.

      1. That’s what I was afraid of. But it was easy-peasy, especially since you can mess around as much as you want ahead of time. It actually was pretty fun to try out the various themes — and it became clear pretty quickly which ones wouldn’t work for me at all: e.g., I don’t want a magazine format, one made strictly for photographers, and so on.
