One of my most enjoyable signs of spring are wildflowers. It's always so beautiful to see their arrival during this time of year. My current favorite wildflower is beargrass. Located mostly within the alpine zone of mountain tops, this plant is native to Montana and is an amazing sight to see, especially along Highline Trail of Glacier National Park, if you’re lucky enough to be there during the short window it blooms.
This patch, which I was extremely happy to come across while hiking in Glacier N.P., sported an amazing view of the valley below. I quickly set my tripod and started a composition, when my wife told me she wanted to hike around the bend, to see the next view (totally understandable and normal, both to see the upcoming view and the fact I’m a slow hiker as I stop often to photograph the scenery). And as she got close to bend, I snapped a few frames of her hiking along the trail. It was really just to get my settings, as I envisioned the image to be absent of people, only nature. But as I worked the scene, I kept coming back to this set of images. It was just a few files that I barely set-up and captured almost out of instinct. And finally determined that it was the one that I wanted all along … Even though it was a somewhat on the go, willy-nilly capture that I thought was just a test shot. It ended up being my favorite … It’s funny how life (and photography) works sometimes isn’t it.

My favorite- it’s absolutely free to you! When you buy tickets directly from a large travel corporation, the commission is built into the price and it just goes back to them... but when you use a travel agent, you know exactly where it goes! #travelagent#shoplocal#travel#explore#montana

Trying a new series of abstract. Trying to be creative now.

I feel the sun, the snow is melting, we are out of negative degree weather and even above freezing, birds are chirping...I think #spring is around the corner and this girl couldn’t be happier! #Helena#Montana#Saturday

Got to return to Casey Meadows for snowshoeing almost a year after CAMP introduced me to the beautiful northern Elkhorns. Blues skies and perfect conditions made for an enjoyable seven-mile trek between massive rolling hills and through the evergreen glades near the East Fork of McClellan Creek. Thanks to Arizona for coming along, I hope you enjoyed the views. 😁 #hiking#montana#406#snow#bluesky#getlost

Special thanks @georgesdistributing for last night’s Second Annual Battle of the Beverages and to all our participants!
Beer stole the title from wine this year and we’re already excited for next year’s battle.
We would love to see any other pics and posts from the night! Please tag us.
About two months ago I began following @thekangaroosanctuary. 🦘
The daily posts have cheered me, especially during this unusually long winter in western Montana.
My husband stopped in Good Will a few days ago and came across this little gem for 99 cents. It was even made in Australia! 🇦🇺
Now I have a little slice of kangaroo territory right here in Big Sky Country. #australia#kangaroo#montana#bigskycountry

The island of madeira is every explorers dream. Thanks to the excellent geographical location and mountainous relief, these islands have suprisingly balmy weather, with moderate humidity and pleasant average temperatures. Ideal conditions to explore the island.
