Montana Land

I’m from the land of many many trees. Trees that hide what is beyond them. I never realized just how much I missed trees until you move to a barren land!
But. If you allow yourself to, you get used to it. And start seeing the beauty in being able to see for miles and miles.
And then when you go back to tree land, you almost, Almost feel claustrophobic and keep wondering what is ‘beyond those trees’.

Today, and hopefully like most days, I took the pack of dogs for a walk through the pastures.
There was a skiff of snow on the ground, it was just cool enough that I didn’t get all sweaty walking, and not so cold that I froze!
For some reason, it just seemed extra pretty out there today. Was so glad I brought my camera/phone! I like to not have it with me, but Every time I don’t bring my phone, I miss a good photo op! Sorry for the photo dump here. The lighting was changing all so quickly and everything just looked extra beautiful!

The dogs loooooove going on walks! They love all the sage brush and yucca plants and cracks and holes in the rocks where they Know the rabbits hide!

I planned the walk accordingly and the sun was just going down when we were heading back. Pictures never do justice of just how the rugged rock edges were glowing!

Just about back and she got a goat head in her foot. If you don’t know what they are, consider yourself lucky! They are the seed pod of a bad weed. About the size of a pea, maybe a little smaller, but with thorns surrounding it. SO nasty!
