It’s starting to be spring in Southwest Montana. Wildflowers are popping up in the meadows and woods, and every five minutes it’s either raining, sunny or graupeling. The grass is actually green, the rivers are muddy, and some of the trees have tiny leaves.

Last week, Katie and I went to Jodi’s place in Gallatin Gateway for an evening walk and dinner. Check out the old Big Sky Weekly covers on the wall in the barn.
