Letting the fish come to you. The caddis come out of nowhere, streaming up the bank in thick, buff-colored waves. One moment, it’s calm, nary a bug in sight; the next, a burst of fluttering wings. As the wind drives them past, one drifts into my ear, a dozen catch my sleeve, two fight for sanctuary in my left nostril. A quick snort and they’re...
Mountain biking, trail running, montana mountain sports, outside bozeman
It’s a rivalry that’s been simmering since cavemen first carved stone into wheels: runner vs. roller. Today, on the trails around Bozeman, this matchup is apparent in the legions of mountain bikers and trail runners enjoying Montana’s singletrack on any given sunny day.

Pipestone, biking, Montana trails, outside bozeman
Tuning into the trails at Pipestone.  “This is one of my favorite downhills at Pipestone,” John says, a huge smile betraying his guarded excitement. “Just watch out for the stream crossing at the bottom.” And like that, he’s gone, dipping out of sight with Jackie not far behind as I bring up the rear.

An Easterner’s drive along the Beartooth Scenic Byway. How does one describe Hwy. 212, commonly called the Beartooth Scenic Byway? Travel magazines use superlatives like “amazing,” “magnificent,” and “a must-drive,” and while they all apply, the byway is much more than that and something different for everyone. This was my experience.   Summer in...
Lessons from a Bridger Ridge Run veteran. Until recently, I despised the notion of running. It was merely a means to stay somewhat healthy, or penance for a weekend of overindulging. Nevertheless, I set goals, trained, and started running 5k and 10k races—begrudgingly. This all shifted with trail running. Initially, I mixed trail runs with road...
