From Donna:

Last Sunday, Alan and I packed up the car, grabbed our Montana Road and Recreation Atlas, and headed out for a two-night getaway to Grey Cliffs Ranch near Three Forks (our fourth visit). It was perfect timing for two baby boomers experiencing cabin fever.

Sparkles in white snow combined with shadows from a tree.

Look at the sparkles in the snow. Alan and I had a great time practicing photography skills on this getaway.

Grey Cliff’s chef, Rory Kain, spoiled us with outstanding meals. Mother Nature continued the spoiling with bright, sunny days. Our road trip route included the Big Hole Valley, the ghost towns of Nevada and Virginia Cities, and the ranching community of Ennis.

On the way home, we took a scenic detour from Anaconda to Phillipsburg and back to the interstate at Drummond. What an awesome boomer getaway!

Donna here: I’m sort of proud of this Canyonlands photo. Don’t you like the texture of the tree framing mountains in the distance?

Updated this week:
