Black Eagle Falls at Sunset

After a wonderful dinner the other night at The Cattlemen’s Cut Supper Club between Great Falls and Vaughn, we drove back to Great Falls and decided a walk along the River’s Edge Trail was in order. Lucky for me, my camera was in the car so I grabbed it before we started our walk. Since we’ve […]

Stanford Displays History

I was on the highway from Lewistown to Great Falls and decided to make a quick (I thought) stop mid way in Stanford. Stanford is a town of about 400 people and you need to turn off the highway to see the community. And, it’s well worth the stop! One of my reasons for stopping was […]

Dessert at the Onyx

We actually had dinner at the Onyx lounge and restaurant located in Lewistown’s Calvert Hotel…then dessert! After a very yummy dinner, which certainly documented that I’m a member of the clean plate club, we then ordered dessert. We all decided we wanted to sample a couple of the desserts on the menu and that “couple” […]

I knew we were getting close to the end of our day long motorized trip through the White Cliffs of the Missouri. Bill Marsik, owner of Missouri Breaks River Co., was keeping an eye on his watch and also on the sky. First of all, he knew we had a scheduled visit to the museum in Winifred […]

Several Great Falls area artists gathered this past Saturday at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park near the town of Ulm to capture images of this unique park. Organized by Studio 706 Art Guild, the workshop featured Diane Hausmann of Fairfield teaching oil painting. Participants painted using a method known as “plein air” – a French expression […]

Hole In The Wall Hike

I hesitate to call this a hike to Hole In The Wall. It’s more like a rock scramble when you get almost to the top. I’ve climbed part ways up here before but never made it all the way to the top. Well, I told myself I was going to do the full climb today. […]
