Paradise Valley ~ Big Sky Country

It's hard for me to give language to how I feel here in big sky country. I have to be in place for a while before I am able to draw the words out of my body and spirit to express the landscape. Thankfully, I don't need to, because the photos can say it for me.

Seasonal craziness aside (and the normal challenges of raising kids and paying the bills), I like my life and I love the city; but I needed this so badly and I had no idea how much I needed this, till I was right here. Three straight days of driving are so very, very worth it.

Warm, open and relaxed, the sense that came over me when we arrived in Montana earlier this week, does not begin to describe how summer feels this week in the Paradise Valley.

    Beautiful pictures, Renee. Be sure to check out the natural hotpools around Flathead Lake if you pass that way when you head north. In some places they put that healing water in public bathtubs!

      We're in Montana to visit/collaborate with friends/business partner of Damien's and to see as many sights as possible while here. I's a working vacation. Damien is working during the week, as he usually does at our home in Montreal, while the kids and I are living semi-normal life/making the most of Montana. On the weekends our family is hiking and being tourists.
