The Rocky Mountain Front

One of my favorite parts of our Montana visit was our drive along the Rocky Mountain front.  The views were absolutely breathtaking.  See for yourself.

This is the Bellview School.  They no longer teach school there everyday, but they still use it for conventions and teacher trainings and whatnot.

During our drive, we decided to stop at Mill Falls for a quick picnic and a short hike to see the falls.  It was Tanner’s first hike in the woods, not to mention his first waterfall.

After our hike and picnic, we drove on to Antelope Butte Lake.  We brought the kayaks, but decided not to paddle because it was pretty hot, and I didn’t want Tanner to get overheated.

One of my favorite parts of the drive was seeing these cool Limber Pine trees.  They are so gnarled and twisty, I had to stop and take some pictures of them.

Karen, There really is no more beautiful place than Montana. Once it is in your heart, it is there forever. I love your pictures! Tanner is getting so big already! In a few days your mom and dad are coming to visit and I will get to hear all about how wonderful Tanner is :0)
