Last week I went skiing by myself at Bohart Ski Ranch outside Bozeman. I had grand plans of skiing every morning while we were here. Unfortunately I forgot that skiing at sea level (or close to it) in Seattle is very different than skiing at 6,000 ft in Montana. Unfortunately I had to stop every minute or so and my lungs were hating me. Never the less, it was a lot of fun.

After such a rough first trip it wasn’t till today that I made it back. Today Mark came with me and we were treated to beautiful weather, empty trails, and fresh snow. Here are a few shots from the day.

Montana is one of the Trout meccas of the world. People come to Montana all over the world to fish it’s famous waters. Most people come here to fish during summer and fall, it’s sunny, it’s beautiful and you don’t need several layers of long underwear to fish. But winter fishing is great. Less people on the river, the snow is fun, and you get to see lots of animals … including trout.
