No mosquitos (at least in my area), but no rain either ... :-(.

No tornadoes, but we had a heck of a straightline wind this summer. We had to cut ourselves out of the West Kootenai with a chainsaw ... That brought back memories of the MidWest....LOL!

Long summer nights with light until 10:30 p.m. and every sunset new.

Clear skies to see the constellations and winking stars.

The awesomeness of the mountains.... God at work!

I love the wildlife that I can sit and watch from the comfort of my house, I love my neighbors & the fact that they would help if it was asked of them, I love the long drives to larger towns and I love that we don't have a stoplight where I live. I love how most everyone in town knows who you are and what you do here and that they recognize when something exceptional has happened.

Kalispell. I've needed something from the plat room or from the recorders office and actually just called, explained what I wanted, she put down the phone and looked it up, copied it and I said I'd drive in to get it. She asked if I had a fax and when I said yes she shot it right over to me.
I've walked into the plat room or recorder or planning with a weird question and spent an hour going over the plat books or talking over the questions with them and finding out way more than I thought I needed when I walked in there. The longest I've ever waited was about 4 minutes for one to be available.

The only hold up sometimes is getting a car registration or a drivers license but it's not horrible. Walked in the other day with my son to get his license and was in and out in a little less than a half hour including driving test.
I'm floored by the service at these offices, never have I had contact with such a good group of government employees!!!!!

I like the fact that I can go ride in wagon tracks that are well over a hundred years old.

I like the fact that there is so much recent history - if you know the stories and the locations there are a lot of remnants to see.

I like the fact that the weather is just harsh enough for people to complain. Keeps the herd thinned.

I enjoy talking with visitors; hearing them talk about the preconceptions they have about our state is pretty interesting. I doubly enjoy letting their kids maul my old hat and seeing their faces as they get their picture taken.

I cherish that there are still stashes of country where I never see human sign. Not many left, but those that are there are more than worth it. Gives perspective.

I like the summer mountain air that is just as deep and sweet as a spring creek, the storms that blow through, and sitting around a high mountain camp with a billion diamonds above, and the Milky Way so clear that it's like sitting immersed in this giant wheeling pool of stars and dark. It makes your breath catch if you sense it just right.

I cherish the experiences I've had. I never exactly made a great living, probably missed tons of vacation time, likely won't have much of a retirement. But I get to be one of the ones who have stories. Lots and lots of stories. And a few scars, too, lest I forget some of the better ones.

And that's what life is, I think....a collection of memories.
