A Nice Stroll and Then a Blah Day

No real effort in walking in this post…just a couple of photos that speak to the beauty of Montana…we walked the back forty a couple of days ago and admired the river…


I was checking out the area for cross-country skiing potential.  I’ll give that before-you-know-it-you’re-flat-on-your-derriere-out sport another try back here.


Yesterday, the skies were cloudy alllll day and I was completely unmotivated.  We finally drug ourselves outside for a walk, this time in a downtown park, and of course, within a tiny bit of time, my spirits were perking up.  What is it about being outside that speaks to and lightens the soul?


And, by the look of this photo, Montana was quietly holding up its end of the bargain – being beautiful – all the while.

My love of walking began in 2005, when, travelling with my Girl Scout troop to Switzerland, I joined a group of Norwegians for a day, to walk up Elsignenalp. I wasn't at all sure I could make it, but the guide was kind and through her encouragement, started out. It was an all-day affair for me and I was always the last one, but this didn't matter a bit...I'd found my new love! No photos exist for this...the camera went missing on a train...but I remember toasting myself with a cup of tea from my thermos at the top...it was a day of tough work and pure pleasure. If you walk, you know what I mean!

    Love the river pictures!

  4. Montana was a nickname of mine because its a dream to visit… Someday I will get out there… For now WI And MN will have to do.

  5. You’re certainly in two beautiful states! We have a history in MN and often travelled through WI…II especially love the old railroad beds turned to bike trails, taking us through country that we’d never see otherwise. A very progressive development decision, I think.
