Wrapping up our Montana trip
We left Montana on Monday morning, almost a month after we got there. You guys have been following along on our saga filled trip, so I thought I would just wrap it all up.
The beginning, and the end, of our month were pretty dang good. After our great stay in Ennis and visiting Virginia city, and Nevada city we had our show in Kalispell. Probably wouldn’t go back for that show.
Like I mentioned briefly in my post about Glacier, we stayed at a blog friends place for a couple of nights. I didn’t show you guys the wonderful photos I was able to take when she took us to Montana wild wings bird rehab.
I fell in love with this tiny pygmy owl. How cute is he!?
I think he would make a great traveling pet.
This is a screech owl, he was great too.
And a great horned owl, I love these guys.
This is a great gray owl. These guys are huge, and amazing.
After leaving there you already know the stories, so I won’t rehash it.
We got to Bozeman last Wednesday and settled into an RV park. We spent Thursday wandering in the very cute downtown area. Bozeman is one of those old historic towns, that has reinvented itself into a fun, quirky place. It’s a college town, so that has helped bring new blood to the area.
This sign was outside a bagel shop in downtown. A lot of the shops had funny signs like this. One hamburger place had a sign that said, “Sorry…We’re open.”
The Sweet Pea show was Friday evening, and Saturday and Sunday. What a fun event. There was so much to do and see there. 4 stages had everything from drama, to great music. The kids activity area was near our tent, and they looked like they were having so much fun. There was an enormous pile of scrap wood. They handed out hammers and nails and the kids could build whatever they wanted. There was also a painting area, and some painted pictures, others their wood creations.
The art show was busy, with a great crowd of people actually wanting art. I would for sure go back and do this show again.
I printed some of the images I took of the Bleu Horses and people really liked them. It was interesting to me how many people knew about them, but had never walked through them like I had to get the photos.
I played around with a few more of these photos yesterday, black and white and some cool textures makes them different.
So, Montana redeemed itself in the end. I knew it would, it really is mostly a pretty state. Big skies, and some very nice mountain areas.
We have been in the Island park area of Idaho, and will head to Jackson Hole today. Two art shows this weekend, so it will be more than hectic.
