The Last Best Place – Montana
I’m at our house in Montana. Here are a few pics so you can see our front yard.
There are many wild animals here like, bear, elk, mountain lions, bighorn sheep and bald eagles. I am very much at home.
Today will be very hot and I will spend the day floating the river. We have many different boats to take, but my favorite is a simple inner tube. (You know, like a big truck tire… you just sit on and float… get suntan and enjoy the wildlife along the river.
In the boats you must row and do something… but in the tube there isn’t a care in the world….uh… except when your tube is floating straight toward a rattle snake or other weird and thrilling animal along the side. While we were floating the other day a rattle snake went swimming past. I thought it was odd, but I guess it needed to get to the other side of the river.
It is very hot here but not like in SE Asia. Here it is 100º but it is a dry heat. The danger of fire is high because it does not rain here. You can see in the picture of our front yard and the one with the moon in it, that there is a lot of grass that easily can burn. Even riding horses can be dangerous if the horses metal shoes kick against a rock and ignite the brush.
We have many head of cattle on our property. I like the weather, the people, the outdoors and the beautiful setting of mountains all around me. I wonder if you would like it but then… I don’t care because I like being here where there are NO people. lol.
Of course I will invite you both to visit me some year in the future. One cannot help but to love the wonderful country of America. It is like few places on earth. Very nice.
love to the world from a place where few live and few will ever come to visit., thankfully.
