On one of our trips back east, we had to stop at Bozeman on the outskirts. It was right next to some holding pens for cattle. It was a rickety old broken down gas station. the man that filled our tank, was older than the pumpls. Then another time on one of our cross country trips we did stop at a diner on the outskirts of Missoula. We were the only strangers in there. Everyone knew everyone elses name. But they were really nice people. I do remember as we were driving, seeing the mountains off in the distance. They were so pretty. It was in the fall.

What a gorgeous area, PF!

It's a drizzly 39F here along the Mighty Mississip. The lawn looks better now than it did all summer.

It is a 40F. here today and very sunny. I should get dressed and bring back some containers to my daughter's house. But this is my lazy Sunday. I am staying put.

Wow! That is a beautiful area! You are very fortunate to have such elevation so close to you. Here it's all flatland/prarie surronding the city. I'd be willing to guess there is an awesome view at the top of that mountain.

Oh yes, it's absolutely stunning. That is Mt. Sentinel, there are various hiking, biking and car trails up to the top. The University is directly at the base. South of this shot the Bitterroot River flows north into the Missoula Valley to meet up with the Clark Fork that you can see in this picture. The Blackfoot river meets up with the Clark Fork just east of this shot. The Blackfoot is where the movie, "A River Runs Through it" was filmed.

These rivers all join up and empty into the Columbia River.

Warm weekend in the 70s here. Our townhouse holds heat and it was 78 degrees inside, so I flipped the thermostat to a/c. In a couple days we'll be back to heat.

I guess our warm spell is ending. Gray, gloomy, wind from the NNW. :(
