It's a new year. Something I've learned is that it isn't easy having a blog. Well, it's not easy having a blog that people want to read. It's not easy keeping it current. Full of things that someone would actually like to read. But it's time. High time that I make that happen.
I never leave my house without a camera. Not to walk my dog. Not to go to the Post Office. Not even to go to my part-time job. Heck, I get up in the morning checking to see what the sunrise will look like through my kitchen window. Montana sunrises rarely disappoint. They're more likely to be gorgeous than not. Same with sunsets. If there are even a few clouds in the sky, it's probably going to be beautiful. Then there are the mountains. Oh, those mountains. The Beartooths and Absarokas are in my backyard. Whether they're snow covered or sunlit - they are always awesome to see. They take my breath away.
I've lived in Montana for 5 1/2 years now....I NEVER tire of seeing the mountains or the sunrises or the abundance of wildlife that call this part of the world home. Just this morning, I saw a bald eagle sitting in a tree on my way to Red Lodge. Then there were dozens of white tail deer feeding in a partially snow-covered pasture. I even enjoy seeing the hundreds of cattle that graze along the highway, their heads buried in fresh hay in a feeder or cleaning up hay scattered on the ground for them. I can't wait for the new calves that will be born in the next month or two... their cute little faces and their exhuberant frolicking. I can't help myself. Seeing them makes me smile. And, it makes my heart happy.
So, I'll share a couple of images of the things that make me happy. I hope you'll enjoy sharing these moments with me.
