I think it's time to return to Montana blogging, at least for a while. My apologies for the long absence ... it's been a very busy few months, with a number of changes, and I want to mention a couple of them in my first two posts.
When you go exploring, the most important thing is to have good travel companion, and for nearly seven years I had the very best -- Miles, the Border Collie. Miles was along for nearly all of my Montana wandering, and he saw more of the state than nearly any human ever will. Always eager to go, always happy to be on the road with me.
Miles died back in May, after battling a tumor for over two years ... an eager hiker and great companion till the very end. Rest well, my friend.
