In the days leading up to Memorial Day weekend, our weather got progressively worse. Cold, rainy, yuckie. Then on the Sunday it snowed. By the time I got up it had melted at the house, but you can see it in the hills about a mile behind us.
We decided to drive to Missoula, because it was supposed to be a bit warmer, and we wanted to go to the mall. So we got in the car and headed out.
I’ll call this bit
Here is the view of Mt. Helena.
Then we headed into the Mountains, through McDonnell pass towards Missoula.
And there was a little snow in the pass.
But on the other side when we got back out of the mountains, things got greener.
This is a Beaver Slide.
It’s a contraption used for stacking hay in a big ol pile.
unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of the hay piles.
Lots of beaver references in Montana.
After a few hours we made our way home. Missoula is only slightly more exciting than Helena.
This totally reminded me of the beginning of that movie.
I even made a little video. It’s not the least bit exciting, and I move the camera way too much, But I am learning.
Have a lovely day, and remember to find me on Facebook!
