The end of summer 2013
We just returned from our Yellowstone National Park trip, to find that the summer is coming to an end.
The floating docks have been pulled out of Whitefish Lake, and the crowds are diminishing. Kids are back in school, and the air feels empty.
A tourist town like Whitefish, Montana, is a strange place to call home. People come in waves, filling the shops, lakes, and streets for short periods of time, until they are gone. The lines disappear, the traffic slows down, time almost stands still. Until they return for Christmas, or the following summer.
This summer has been filled with wonderful times for my family. Soon this mountain behind my baby girl will have snow on it, and I will be sharing lots of information on skiing in Montana.
I don’t know how much you have read about me. But I used to compete in moguls and aerials for many years. Skiing is a large part of my life, and I have a lot in store for you this winter. I also look forward to sharing my daughter’s first time on skis at 18 months old.
I look forward to the snow falling, but as the hot summer nights and dips in the lake dwindle, I breathe in every last breath of fresh air and get outside as much as possible. Fall is gorgeous here, as the leaves change color and there are less crowds. It is still a wonderful time to plan your visit.
Cheers to this summer, this fall, this winter, and to many more.
Warm Wishes from Big Sky Country,
