All of these lines across my face - tell you the story of who I am - so many stories of where I've been - and how I got to where I am - but these stories don't mean anything - when you've got no one to tell them to - it's true - I was made for you. B. Carlile

A Day on the Big Hole

"Listen to the sound of the river and you will get a trout."  ~Irish proverb
Jared made it to Montana! We were excited to have a visitor.
Bare and Bret introduced Jared to the Big Hole River,
and they enjoyed a day on the water.

"It is not a fish until it is on the bank."


Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest

"The farther one gets into the wilderness, the greater is the attraction of its lonely freedom."
Theodore Roosevelt
Bare and I left the Ruby River Rendezvous and
took a drive through the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. 
Definitely, one of the best days we've had in Montana!
We drove and drove and drove and drove.
We probably only saw five people the entire five hours we were in the forest.
But the animals were out.
It was beautiful day.
As D.J. said, "It's like my personal Yellowstone with no traffic or people."
