Spring in Montana!

Sure looks like spring, doesn't it? We tried to visit a ghost town, Garnet, up in the hills east of Missoula, but were turned back by snow on the dirt road. We'll try again in a few weeks.

This is the play equipment at Dragon Hollow in Caras Park, downtown Missoula. I would love see my granddaughters playing on it!

The famous "M" just above the University of Montana. We plan to climb up to this landmark soon to get a fabulous view of the city. The zigzag trail leading up there is visible in the photo. (Click to enlarge.)

"A River Runs Through It". Missoula was built right on the banks of the Clark Fork River and the river is a dominant part of the old downtown scenery. The building across the way is an old train station, no longer used for that purpose.

Two "old coots" in the mirror outside the Carousel in Caras Park. We can't wait to go inside and ride the Carousel for ourselves. Got there too early for that on this picture-taking day.
