I feel like I should let you in on a little secret. Sometimes I can’t believe I live here. Literally.
On Christmas Day I was driving along Highway 200 and the Blackfoot River and let me tell you what, you should have seen that drive. The roads were clear, but the river was frozen in places and its banks were covered in snow. The sun was shining and as I drove along all I could think about was how serenely beautiful this state is…being Montana born and raised, you would think I’d be used to having my socks knocked off by now, whether it’s a perfect morning view of Potomac, a mama moose and baby wading in the water at Swiftcurrent Lake or the lights of Missoula from the Rattlesnake.
But happily, it never gets old. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Joyous New Year.
