We decided on a driving vacation to visit friends Mel and Cathy in Big Sky, Montana.
I absolutely LOVE the mountains. Now don't get me wrong. I love the Midwest where I've lived my whole life. But there is something about the mountains that simply makes me happy. I could look at the mountains every single day and never get tired of the scenery. So here's glimpse of the beauty that surrounded us every day in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana...

Mel and Cathy have a beautiful home, and the views from their deck are incredible. Here is a sampling of what we enjoyed:

And it was a wonderful relaxing week with Mel, Cathy, Chuck and Melanie. Lots of stories, laughter, food and drink.

We've been home for one week now, and I still see the mountains in my mind's eye. And I'm already thinking about how and when to get back there. And dreaming about how we could live there...
Have a great week!
