As you can tell from the photo below, Alan and I finally explored more of our Montana backyard. This view of the Bitterroot Mountains appeared during a stop on our ATV ride to Gird Point Lookout in the Sapphire Mountains. What a gorgeous 26-mile-round-trip adventure. We’re looking for another one just like this tomorrow. Stay tuned.
