Montana + Canada

Of all the memorable views, the best have been framed by Montana windows"  ~ William Hjortsberg
If you’ve been reading this blog long, you know I have quite a love affair with Montana. Sometimes I pretend that I work for the Montana Dept of Tourism…
Here are some pics from the trip out there~

If you haven’t ever been to Glacier, you really must put it on your must-sees. I think it’s got to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth…

Look at the difference in the next 2 pictures. On the way up (Going to the Sun Road) it was sunny & 95 degrees and dropped 20 degrees on the way up to Logan pass.

The next day on the way down, it was cool, rainy, and even hailed. They say if you don’t like the weather in Montana, wait a few hours…july 2011 639 2

Have you been to Montana or Alberta?

Do you wish you lived there? ;)

    My family and I went on a ski trip to Big Sky when I was in high school, and close to 15 years later I still have dreams of going back!  And I've moved 2 gorgeous framed photos that I took from house to house to house over the years!  Our Christmas card that year was my family on top of a mountain, my sister and I with snowboards strapped to our feet. I remember stepping (sliding) off the chairlift the first day, turning around and just staring.  Sometimes it's nice to be reminded just how amazing our world can look.

  2. I love your pictures of Glacier!  After this visit, I did think that I could live in Alberta or Montana.  It was so beautiful this year -- unusually green.  Waterton was awesome, and we even got an overnight trip there without kids courtesy of my inlaws.  :)  We love Canadian junk food, too.  So funny that we were there at the same time.  It's beautiful country!

  3. My husband and I just got back from a quick trip through Glacier to Kalispell- your post was very timely.   We love it down in that Flathead /Whitefish area, but we also love living on the Prairies south of Lethbridge, Alberta.  Also home of big skies and beautiful sunsets.
    enjoyed your pictures too.  Thanks for sharing your vacation with us.

  4. We just got home from a week in Montana.  My in-laws live there this time of year.  I agree that it is one of the most beautiful places on earth!  We spend every vacation talking about buying a cabin there.  


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
