You Know You're in Montana when . . .

I promise this will be my last post about Montana (for the time being anyway)!

After all, Lee and I have been back from our Montana vacation for almost a week now, and (as you may be thinking) it’s time we get back into our regular routines here at home, right? Right.

Indeed, we have begun to resume our normal schedules.

Our sweet greyhound Harley is blissfully home again, after having spent WAY too much time in the kennel (in his mind, anyway).

I’ve emptied our luggage and travel boxes and put things away (taking less than my usual two weeks!) and I’ve already completed several loads of dreaded “trip laundry” .

Lee has gone to work back at his office, and I am beginning to launch into designing some new handmade cards.

And soon, hopefully, I’ll have some new card creations to blog about. . . .

But, before that, I couldn’t resist just ONE more blog entry to share a few more photos and memories from our recent trip to the beautiful state of Montana. So here goes! I’m calling this post . . .


"You Know You’re in Montana when . . . ."

the d├ęcor in your condo unit/hotel room has an unmistakable “Western” flair . . . .




you don’t even have to get out of your car to photograph local wildlife . . .





you can’t drive anywhere in the countryside without crossing or coming up alongside a fork or a tributary of the Flathead River . . . .









one of the locally brewed beers on tap in bars and available in restaurants and grocery stores is actually named “Moose Drool” . . .



you find yourself driving in a snowstorm the second to last week of April (of course, HOW is that different from here at home in Utah??) . . .



murals and wall art take on an entirely new dimension . . .








Thanks for visiting my Blog!

And until we meet again . . . may all your travels, whether near or far, be memorable.

I love Montana (and Wyoming) so blather on about it! :) One of the many times I was in Yellowstone it started snowing in JULY.

Welcome home, it's always nice to get back to the doggies, isn't it?! :)

I loved looking at the photos. It's been years since I was in Montana.

Hey Jan,
Loved looking at all the beautiful photographs. Montana looks so wonderful this time of year. I'd love to just take off in an RV and spend the rest of the year touring the US.
