Time to Leave Triple J Ranch

Our time is up at Triple J guest ranch and we are moving to our next ranch. Goodbyes are said several times and it’s obvious we are leaving a corner of our heart at the ranch. Memories are with us though. The descent down the mountains is the same route we used before. We travel past Gibson […]

Summer Kick-Off

I always feel that summer officially begins when Memorial Day weekend rolls around. Communities throughout Montana’s Russell Country take this cue, as all of our seasonal museums and visitor attractions open up at least by Memorial Day. This past weekend I spent some time in Chinook, MT and took in the Memorial Day services there. Community pride shines […]

Take A Stroll on the River’s Edge Trail

This non-motorized use trail is on both north and south sides of the river and bypasses Black Eagle Falls, Rainbow Falls and Crooked Falls.  The trail is paved for approximately 12 miles but as you reach the edges of the city, it […]
