Two for Tuesday - It Happened Again...This Time, Right on Top of Mount Maurice in Red Lodge, Montana - 07/27/10 09:29 PM
Two for Tuesday - It Happened Again...This Time, Right on Top of Mount Maurice in Red Lodge, Montana I had a recent post where I featured a double rainbow taken over Red Lodge (on July 11, 2010): Speechless Sunday - Double Rainbow Over Red Lodge . Less than a week later, on July 17, 2010, it happened again! I think this one is equally if not more beautiful as the sun was also hitting part of the mountain (Mount Maurice). Here are a couple of photos of this beautiful moment in time.
Then they decided to swim in the lake. See photo in last week's post: Moose Monday - Moose Memorable Moment of My Latest Visit to Yellowstone National Park I had to run to my car and to safety once I saw in my viewfinder that the moose where swimming in my direction (objects/animals may be closer than you realize by the time you stop looking through the viewfinder!). From the seat (21 comments)
Moose Monday - Moose Memorable Moment of My Latest Visit to Yellowstone National Park - 07/19/10 12:35 PM
Moose Monday - Moose Memorable Moment of My Latest Visit to Yellowstone National Park No, it is not Wordless Wednesday (it's Moose Monday) but words could not describe my first moose sighting in Yellowstone National Park. I had been to Yellowstone National Park 3 times last year but with no luck with regards to spotting my favorite wild animal. I was hoping this would change on my most recent and first visit to the park in 2010 and it did just in the nick of time on day 2! As I was planning to leave the park from the East entrance, I spotted not one, but (23 comments)

Speechless Sunday - Double Rainbow Over Red Lodge - 07/11/10 09:54 PM
Speechless Sunday - Rainbow Over Red Lodge I am going to Yellowstone National Park tomorrow (Monday) and looking forward to it. Did you know that the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park is only 69 miles from Red Lodge? As I posted some of my best photos of last weekend's Rodeo of Champions and July 4th parade (Photos of Red Lodge Rodeo and July 4th Parade - Red Lodge, Montana (Part 1)), it rained for a very brief time and immediately cleared up with this very beautiful and colorful view.
I guess this photo opportunity timed itself perfectly for Speechless Sunday. I (32 comments)

Moose Monday - Fourth Post of Four: Mocha Moose Espresso - The Moose is Loose in Roberts, Montana - 07/05/10 11:59 PM
Mocha Moose Espresso - The Moose is Loose in Roberts, Montana On Sunday, during the Red Lodge July 4th parade, I made another moose sighting. No, a real moose did not decide to come down on main street wearing red, white and blue but the moose moosely appeared by surprise in the logo and name of a new coffee place in Roberts, Montana called Mocha Moose Espresso. Roberts is only 13 miles north of Red Lodge and on highway 212 towards Billings, Montana. The exact address is 310 S Railway Avenue on the south end of Roberts. Here is the photo I moosely wanted (22 comments)

Moose Monday - First of Four Posts: Moose in Philadelphia at the July 4th Fireworks So I woke up in the middle of my sleep and as luck wanted it, I was browsing online through the photos on an AOL July 4th article when I stumbled across this Moose photo.

Canada Day and Independence Day in Red Lodge, Montana - Two in One Photo! I hope my Canadian friends had a great day celebrating Canada Day and that my American friends had a great day celebrating Independence Day (there is still a few more hours left to celebrate the latter and with lots of fireworks). Here is a photo I took earlier this afternoon during the parade in Red Lodge.

They Are Everywhere! Another Strange Out-Of-This-World Encounter! - 07/02/10 12:44 PM
They Are Everywhere! Another Strange Out-Of-This-World Encounter! As I was checking The Local Rag newspaper, I found out that today (July 2) is UFO Day. Here are a couple photos I meant to post on AR for quite some time and to the group: PARANORMAL STORIES & EXPERIENCES . Here is a very strange scene that was just staring at me in the streets of downtown Montreal in January 2010. I immediately thought that I had to capture it to share with my friend Vegas Bob on ActiveRain. I was trying to get in the festive holiday shopping mood but I was caught by surprise and in a (13 comments)
Happy Birthday Canada! from Red Lodge, Montana - 07/01/10 08:38 PM
Happy Birthday Canada! from Red Lodge, Montana Today is Canada Day. I want to take the time to wish all my friends and family in Canada, a very Happy Canada Day. I had to search long and hard in town to find a Canadian flag. But here it is, the lone Canadian flag on this Canada day in Red Lodge. It was located at Chateau Rouge (the name is French for red castle).
Thank you Chateau Rouge for having a Canadian flag displayed by the front entrance. You made this Canadian's day and got a feature on this Red Lodge Blog! :) (11 comments)
