    The Bridger Ridge; or, Tell Self Doubt to Take a Seat

    August 27th, 2016 Every year the Big Sky Wind Drinkers facilitate a foot race that runs the entire 20 or so miles of the Bridger Mountain Range Ridge, just north of Bozeman. The “Ed Anacker Bridger Ridge Run,” or, “the Ridge Run,” for short has been held for 32 years now, and apparently was named […]

    How to take a Mountaintop Selfie, by Cosmo the Springer Spaniel

    Step 1: Get human to take you out for a walk. Step 2: Freak out the entire drive to the trail head, just to make sure your human knows that you’re an intoxicating mix of excited and terrified. Step 3: Walk uphill with impossible enthusiasm for half a dog day (appx. 1.5 hours human time). […]

    Tour de Hyalite: Two of the Gallatin’s Great Peaks

    There are few things more satisfying to me that being able to look over the other side- take this as a metaphor if you wish.

    Lone Mountain Ranch: Napping on a Couch

    Ahhh Big Sky. Home of ultimate Montana skiing opulence and such a strange, strange place. I mean no offence to Big Sky. It’s awesome; but every time I drive through the lower village, I have a difficult time reconciling the fact that Big Sky is in fact, a TOWN, not just a resort.

    An Overnight on Garnet Peak

    March 9th, 2016 Montana has a good number of Forest Service cabins available for rent by the public. These cabins can be found all over the nation, in fact, but I’ve only ever stayed in Montana cabins. The first time was at Mystic Lake up the Sourdough canyon on the south side of Bozeman with […]

    Allenspur: An Intro to Climbing; or, I’m Sick as a Dog

    February 26th, 2016 Molly, upon arriving in Montana: “HELLLLLLL YEAAAAAAAAAAAH I’M IN MONTANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-*BAM!* WORST CHEST COLD IN YEARS TAKES HER OUT NEARLY THE MINUTE SHE FRICKIN’ GETS THERE. So. THAT’S disappointing. I’ve basically lost an entire week to the curse that is the chest cold. I mean, this is one of those colds that makes […]

    Training Week 2: And the Fatigue Sets In

    July 5th – July 11th Let’s state the obvious and say that I am writing the post about two weeks too late. I have determined two things: writing is hard; and, having self-discipline around writing is even harder. I COULD say that part of my delinquency with writing is due to the fact that I […]

  • Fourth of July Weekend: Macros, Axtell Bridge, and Triple Tree

    Fourth of July Weekend: Macros, Axtell Bridge, and Triple Tree

    Saturday, July 4th- Sunday, July 5th One of my challenges since arriving in Bozeman has been finding people who have the time and ability to accompany me on some adventures. Being a privileged retired person whose occupations right now include not spending all her money at once, exercising, and writing a blog, I have a […]
