5/5 to 5/30/2017 – We had an excellent winter here in the Flathead Valley, with storm after storm rolling in and filling the mountains with plentiful snow. Therefore, come spring time, there was plenty of skiing still to do (and plenty more currently). Here are photos from a handful of great spring outings in the […]Read more "Hanging On To Winter…"
2/10 to 2/11/2017 – I had a nice little story written up about this excellent trip into the Wolverine Cabin in Ten Lakes… but then it mysteriously disappeared when I published the post… So here is the quick and dirty – Daan spontaneously flew in from Denver to visit Jonny and I (temporarily reuniting a good […]Read more "A Quick Winter Walk into Ten Lakes"
