I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Last Saturday I was done at 1 PM, so I hit the road. It was a great day. I drove about an hour and a half south of Great Falls, ending up at the end of the road…Adel, Montana. The road does end there, as it becomes a private entrance to The Sieben Livestock Ranch. This was one of the two big ranches I heard about while going to Helena last week. BIG, even in Montana. I want to hear the good stuff about how they became what they are today. So far I have just...

On Wednesday I decided to drive south to Helena. I had not been there since I came through while driving to Great Falls back in April. Even though I have driven through Helena several times, I have never even stopped there. I was going to check out a couple of the golf courses, where hopefully I would find one that was not very busy and I would play a round. If not, it was a good day for a ride and i would see what I could see.
My co-worker Nichole to...

I have not cut the grass here for about three weeks. The heat, and lack of recent rain, is killing off the grass. Tuesday evening I was going to cut it, just to even it all out.

Tuesday after work I made a grocery run, then I headed back for ...

Well I had an itch for a drive, so I did a good one Wednesday. A FERRY DRIVE. Going to knock off the second of three free ferries. A few weeks ago I took the ferry over The Missouri River at Virgelle. There is a second ferry very near Great Falls near CARTER. But the third ferry is pretty remote. Which is what attracted me. McCLELLAND FERRY. A ferry that will help you cross The Missouri River in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. It will help you get to the other side ...

Tuesday night was a night to remember here in Great Falls.
After I closed down the office for the day, I went to get some groceries. Storm clouds were bubbling up from the heat of the day. But what caught my attention as I went into the store was a big cloud of brown smoke rising from behind the hills north of town. Wildfire.
After about a half hour shopping, I went back outside and everything was different. There was smoke everywhere. The...
