We have arrived!

Before heading to our final destination, The Trout caught a beautiful brown trout on the Beaverhead River. This is a beauty and was proudly photographed and released to be caught another day.

And then, there is this view! This has got to be one of my favorite views of all my travels. This is Georgetown Lake in Montana, where we will spend the next 10 weeks or so. After 6 years of coming back here every summer, this almost feels like home. Don't be surprised if you see a lot of this lake and the mountains in the next few weeks.

Last night we had a tremendously loud thunderstorm. There has been quite a bit of rain out here because the hills are still quite green, but going past the forestry service this morning, we see that the fire danger is still quite high. There are forest fires around us but we do not see the smoke or smell it at this time. It seems every summer we have a lot of fires around us.

So, now to fill up the larder and get settled in. Have picked up our mail from the last few weeks of traveling, made connections with old friends, and have even started to wind down a bit. We really love this place!


  1. The mountains in the background of your photo are truly majestic. It's wonderful to be able to return to a place you love. Hugs...Mary

  2. Lucky you to see that view everyday for awhile!

  3. Susan, beautiful photos!

    Enjoy your stay at one of your favorite places. I can see why you love it so much ~ wide open and gorgeous scenery. It's lovely.


  4. The view is oh so familar Susan. Good to hear it's still green, we were hoping for that.

    Good old Georgetown Lake, it's so pretty. Well...settle in, breath in the fresh air and rest up, looking forward to your new posts and new photo's, hope to see your cabin too!

    We are counting the days, Aug. 1st we set out for Philipsburg.

    BTW tell Trout, that was a might fine looking fish I must say!
