Sorry folks on the porch I know compared to the north FL's cold is sort of a joke.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I have been busy planning a trip to MT in June to see my daughter. We are going to spend about 8 days traveling around Yellowstone and such. Any thoughts or suggested are always welcome.
Regarding your June trip...................a few suggestions:

1/ Definitely a visit to : The Museum of thr Rockies...right there in Bozeman..............
2/ If you are thinking about Yellowstone N.P. or Glacier N.P................IMHO, I would choose Glacier for several reasons:..........
a/ far less commericalization......thus a far more realistic grasp of "true rugged Montana 'back-country' topography."......................b/ Much greater chance of seeing various forms of wildlife............
c/ Much less crowded than Yellowstone.
3/ And before or after Glacier.......you'll be right at Flathead Lake (The largest Natural Body of water west of the Mississsippi River, and the adjacent communities of Whitefish, Big Fork and Kallispell. Interesting towns.
......If you end up staying overnight in that area, I can suggest a facility called "Mountain Lake Lodge" in Big Fork. I've had several out-of-state visitors stay there over the past several years and liked it very much. And I have stayed there and really liked it. (Note: Their "Low-Season Rate structure (see their web site) ends on May 31st and is about half of the rates that start June 1st.)..... It's a beautiful facility with acceptable pricing. (Note: I have no connection to this operation).

Just some thoughts for you................................ Griz

Your school advancement threw me off......you are not a horse unless you were born up to and thru January 23rd. If you were born after that, you are a sheep. Or since this is a Montana porch, we will call it a 'mountain' goat...... (Both are correct).

The lower concrete panel is to prevent the spread of noxious weeds into my yard and to discourage dogs digging out and skunks or coons from wandering in and the gate hinges are black painted wrought iron. Our tenants leave the gate open so deer bed down in the backyard at night and they keep their dog inside.
I have NEVER seen a fence like that.....I like it!

Ditto on the Museum of the Rockies!
Enjoy your trip! Give the daughter the up from us. I am thinking mother's prayers are causing this spring thaw all over the state.

After, so I am ... I can't possibly be a sheep, crazy Chinese calendars anyway... I'm more like a wolf but mountain goat, that would fit -- we always said my grandmother was part mountain goat so I must be too!!

It was an unexpected 26 degrees here in SoCal night before last, came out and all the water was frozen. Surprise!

So Cal at 26???? Here in Spots Wyoming we've been hitting mid 50's for a week. Our forecast is really screwy. They are calling for a high of 50 and 20% chance of snow. Huh????

I spent 20 years in San Diego and actually saw frost in the grass once. Sure, you could go out in the mountains and find snow but not down in San Diego proper.

That's why I come home. Needed my snow and the mountains.
