I had the opportunity this past weekend to take a morning and enjoy it with my family, which is something we do not get to do as often as I would like. My wife and I currently have two children, our son is almost 4, our daughter is 18 months, and we are expecting #3 in December. We are not crazy but, if the family continues to expand at this rate, we may be soon. Spare time is at a premium and enjoying it all together is rarer still. So when the opportunity arose for a family hike we were (0 comments)
Southwestern Montana is dotted with a plethora of clear mountain stream and crystal lakes, and many of them are located a short distance the recreation centers ofBozeman and Big Sky. The trouble lies not in the decision to visit these natural wonders but in which one to choose as the days destination. A couple weeks back, my wife and I loaded up kids, car seats, stroller and camera and headed to Fairy Lake which is located in a mountain cirque in the Bridger Range north of Bozeman. After exiting the asphalt we followed the Forest Service road approximately 7 miles to the campground, trailhead (0 comments)
When tales of Montana are traded on front porches, commercial airplanes and executive offices across the United States, they usually include a repertoire of epic skiing, trophy trout rising to dry flies, horseback riding in the back-country, hikes, mountain biking trails, even hunting big game. I would venture that seldom are the terms “scuba diving” and “Montana” used in the same sentence. There are, however, a group of hardy enthusiasts whose pursuit of new outdoor experiences leads them into the depths of Montana’s lakes and rivers. I happen to be one of those tortured souls who use (0 comments)
Chest Deep Powder Anyone? The November 2010 issue of "Powder" Magazine ranks the top 20 places in North America to "Live to Ski" with Bozeman, MT ranked #1. The magazine considered area population, the price of lift tickets and season passes, vertical feet of terrain available, annual snowfall and important things such as room rates and best bars. Powdersays, "Bozeman is the perfect mix of ski town and skitropolis; it's more affordable that Jackson Hole, less crowded than Salt Lake City, and more of a real town than Whistler." They also comment that the area, "lays claim to three blue-ribbon trout waters all within an (1 comments)
Montana State University The Bozeman area is ready to put its money where its mouth is and support a local tax hike if that's what it would take to create a two-year community college here, community leaders said Monday. Bozeman needs a full-fledged community college, Mayor Jeff Krauss said at a "listening session" held by Sheila Stearns, Montana commissioner of higher education, and Montana State University President Waded Cruzado. About 50 people attended the meeting at the GranTree Inn. Krauss said he really appreciates the progress made this year with the two-year Gallatin College Programs at MSU, but more (0 comments)

The river is fringed with mature trees and large stands of willow line its banks and the community trails. The River Often referred (0 comments)
Madison River near Cameron, MT A common thread among my friends who are looking for property in this area of Montana revolves around the dream of having a property where they can walk out their back door and hear the calming rush of water. From small, private creeks to the power and recreational opportunities of rivers like the Madison and Yellowstone, the presence of water has always been a large driving factor in the decision to purchase investment or recreational properties. In our little corner of the globe, we have been overwhelmingly endowed with access to phenomenal water courses. The fishing on the (0 comments)
60 E. Horse Creek Road, Cameron, MT The Property Located on 6 acres that is directly adjacent to open space and ponds within SunWest Ranch, the property at 60 E. Horse Creek is quintessential Montana. The views from the parcel include the full complement of mountain ranges present in the greater area. The property is situated off of an interior subdivision road that services just three home sites throughout this portion of the community. The home is protected by mature trees and approaching the home you immediately gain the sensation of seclusion (in a good way) and privacy. The mature aspen and fir trees that (1 comments)

These qualities are brought together and gently nestled in southwestern Montana’s West Boulder River valley at a former map dot known as “Hawkwood”. The cornerstone of this true Montana treasure, that has garnered editorial acclaim, is the record contained within the walls of the home and the discriminating touches used to elevate this historic artifact to a modern masterpiece.
