Just a little




(The Indians called this the Wall of tears and My FAVORITE spot in MOntana- My thinking spot.)


Home sick. Just a little bit and I am sure it will pass but I loved the warm weather time in Montana. YOu had to enjoy every minute of while you could as our summers were very short. Our weekly trip to Glacier National Park, Holter Lake and camping were things I looked forward to. Not to mention I got to go to camp up in the Yellowstone area and we always took a day trip there at least twice a year. These places were my play grounds. I was chatting with Mom about the 4th of July. How we used to go and sit and watch the fireworks be shot off the butte. The one you see here top picture. Or if we were camping then over the lake.
The Great Falls


Heavens Peek

I don't know why, I live in a beautiful area but I just miss Glacier most of all. I spent as much time there as I could and by the pictures I hope you will see why. If you ever get the chance Visit the Big Sky Country. It will surly be a trip you won't forget.

LOVE the pictures Pea! They are breath-taking. And the song to go with it....LOVE that too, one of my favorites.

I have not been many places in my life, so the pics are about as close as I will get. :)

Hugs,

Thank you Tonya. Great Falls was something I drove by almost every week while at home. Funny how I never paid attention to it till much later and only missed it after I left home.
I am missing this beautiful country but I am blessed that I live here as well. I will try and get pics of that this week.
Thanks again
Hugs,Pea

Jenny,
Most folks think Montana is flat and with a hour in every direction just about is mountains and lots of stuff to do.
I do miss it.
