Winter in Montana

We recently returned from our first trip to the Western U.S. in winter. Wow. The Montana landscape is sooo overwhelming visually. But on the other hand, as a photographer it's easy to make great shots because mountains are just so damn sexy.

There are times I wish the Upper Peninsula had real mountains, but then there would be way more people here and we probably wouldn't be able to afford to live the way we do.

So, I guess Montana can keep the mountains and I'll be satisfied with having a brother-in-law who lives and works in them and keeps a couch, a fly rod and a pair of skis with my name on them for when I get a little itch to go West.

Kinda had a Shining feel to it though.
