Fire Season

Personal Travel

Western Montana

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the states in the West who are suffering from the bad fire season this year. I lived in Montana for two years and a fire can be so destructive so quickly. Cloud the air and turn a once beautiful landscape burnt for many years to come. Displacing homes for people and animals. Fires are a part of the natural cycle but with almost a million acres burned this season I am praying for snow.

 

In the image above, two friends and I took a midnight hike up the Bitterroot National Forest in Western Montana to view the sunrise. It was a hike I will never forget. Montana leaves an imprint on the hearts that truly explore this great place.
