More Quilt Shops

I’ve been out and about visiting a few of the quilt shops on Russell Country’s quilting trail, camera in tow! What a day-brightener to stop in and visit these beautifully decorated shops. The Quilt-Away, located in Great Falls, was recently selected by Better Homes & Gardens as one of the top 10 quilt shops in the United States. That’s […]

Food – Wonderful Food

Now, I’ve been known to rave about food and that’s just what I plan to do here! Several friends and I recently dined at the Union Grille located in the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, MT. Oh my, what a treat. It was a chilly evening and we were a bit late for our dinner […]

Visiting the Birthplace of Montana

I recently had an opportunity to visit Fort Benton and to tour the reconstructed fort. I’ve been there quite a few times but each time I go more work has been done to re-create life as it was when this fort was a bustling trading post. Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I’ve heard docents refer to this fort as […]

An Awesome 50’s Diner

Sundowner at Sage Safaris

When Sarah and Jake Dusek first told me about the Sundowners they were doing north of Havre I wasn’t sure what all it would entail. Patterned after an African-style event, a Sundowner is where you watch the sun set and enjoy beverages and finger foods. That sounded pretty good to me! We preceded the Sundowner with […]

Still Underground in Havre

Our tour of Havre’s underground, named Havre Beneath the Streets, was a whirlwind due to some scheduling challenges. But, we all came away with some fun photos. This picture shows just how photo-happy we were! Everyone was snapping photos in the Sporting Eagle Saloon. The saloon is fairly large for a business underground. Havre Beneath the […]

Keeping The Railroad Theme

As soon as my friends arrived at the Havre Amtrak depot we scurried to the nearby Railroad Museum. It’s just two blocks from the depot so it’s very convenient, even if you don’t have transportation. We were going to try to squeeze in as much touring as possible that afternoon and what a fun place to […]
