Greetings Y’all, from the beautiful State of Montana!
I find myself in the spring of 2011 working in Boulder, Montana, a village of approximately 1,300 people. As noted in earlier posts, I feel fortunate to find seasonal work in places which usually close for the winter. Spring and summer, therefore, provide temporary jobs and keep my schedule more free for volunteer work.
After residing in southern California for most of my adult life, it is a treat to live in an area where there are so few people. Boulder is located in the mountains between the cities of Butte and Helena. I am always awed at being on the highway to either of these cities and sharing the road with 2 or 3 other cars!! Life free of the fast lane indeed! Another really attractive feature to the life here is that people are friendly, untrendy (meaning how you dress is unimportant), and seem to mind their own business. I have considered that heaven cannot be much better, but then again I have not had to deal with the winter.
In the following photos you get a taste of the scenery, the spring weather, and my participation at Boulder’s 100th anniversary celebration with my young friend, Leona. Yes, we are waiting for May flowers. Possibly in Montana they come around by July. Wishing you all a truly wonderful spring wherever that may be!
