Man, Dog, and Cruiser Conquer the Rocks.

The cruiser has officially pulled out of the garage with POWER STEERING! Woo Hoo! Thanks to the photo bug Sara Janssen (Available for YOUR Portrait Photo needs!), we have recorded the first trip of man, dog, and cruiser on the rocks in our front yard. Mindy is still concerned that the wheels may fall off at any moment. ;-)

Music on Main

Every Thursday through July and August Bozeman hosts various bands for a free concert on a downtown side street. It's a VERY popular event and seems to get bigger every year. It might have something to do with the crazy growth happening out here. The crowd always has lots of familiar faces, even if you don't know their names. I guess that's a great way to make a growing town feel small.

Hiking Pine Creek Lake

We hiked 5 miles up (and up and up) to Pine Creek Lake, climbing approx 3000 feet. The trailhead is located in Paradise Valley south of Livingston MT. Krista (WI) and Joe & Danielle (MN) joined us for the adventure.

There were lots of wild flowers, including glacier lilies, lupine, columbine, forget-me-nots, indian paintbrush and (most importantly) shooting stars!

Our advice: Leave early to hike up in the cool weather, bring lots of snacks and bring out of state friends!
