Sometimes you just need a change of scenery so we headed out west to visit friends Mel and Cathy in Big Sky, Montana.
We took a late afternoon tour of the Badlands which seemed like a different planet.

Little Bighorn was an amazing experience. History books just don't prepare you for seeing the battlefield and the tombstones. A dark cloudy day set the right tone for remembering battles of land and cultures.

Bears are taken seriously in this area. Our first night here Mel told us how to protect ourselves while hiking, enough so that Mike and I each had bear nightmares our first night...
And we still enjoyed the great outdoors...

Nothing like beautiful scenery and great friends to change your perspective!
