Greetings from Mary...
I wanted to share with you some of the beauty of Montana and some of the things that I have seen and Photo Album enjoyed!
On the right is the view of the city of Billings, as you stand on top of the Rims you can overlook the entire Yellowstone Valley and it is a beautiful sight. The Yellowstone River runs by the edge of town along the South Hills.
As you look west about ninety miles you will see the Beartooth Mountains in all their glory. The elevation of these mountains exceeds over 9000'. The town of Red Lodge sits at the foot of this mountain range and it is a favorite spot of ours. Just a short drive and you feel as if you have gone to another place in time, where you can see the sky for miles on end, and hence the state's nickname "The Big Sky Country". To find out more about Montana you can visit the Montana State Website or the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Website, they are both great.
