Montana Country

Don't expect fashion; do expect character.
 ~ New York Times

rolling hills
big blue sky
soft white clouds drifting
 champagne air
blue birds singing and fluttering about

cattle grazing
 green pasture
 foothills of the Rockies

beautiful old red barns
a home
 a place of birth
of the farms

lodge pole pine, ponderosa, birch, aspen, tamarack

old rusty barbwire fencing

 keeping something in
 or maybe something out...

dirt roads
 leading home
no where at all

the mountains

after all that is what Montana is named after
their majestic beauty

and of course
the wild life!

where folks have grit
love of wide open spaces
room to think
and dream
getting yesterdays news
slower pace
bad cell phone connection
 jeans & t-shirt
muddy boots
ample supply of coffee
an occational bear walking thru town
whipping winds
long winters
eternal optimism that someday the weather will get better
warmer sunnier days to come

I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I'm in love with Montana.
For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection.
But with Montana it is love.
 And it's difficult to analyze love when you're in it.
 - John Steinbeck


  1. oh i can only imagine. the mr. and i have been talking of going to montana for a while now. one day (and hopefully soon).

  2. You captured the wide open skies so perfectly! I love the barn photo! The way you feel about Montana is how I feel about PA :) It's good to love home!

  3. That is some heartfelt affection, and admiration... and it's stirred my wanderlust.

  4. While I love my home, dirt roads and all, with hurricane season approaching and your beautiful photos, I find myself wondering if a move west might be a good thing. The state you call home is stunning Camilla, thank you so much for the photos...keep them coming.

  5. Wow, absolutely stunning. Adding Montana to my list of places to day.

  6. wow, gorgeous camilla! beautiful photos and i love your passion for where you live. i've oftened wondered if i could live away from the sea (never have)but if so, it could be montana i think.

  7. Beautiful! I'd love to visit some day!

  8. What gorgeous county, camilla. I really want to come to your part of the world and live for a bit to truly soak it up.


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
