Montana River Snorkeling
River snorkeling in southwest Montana. “Whoa, big fish,” my husband, Rob, exclaimed. We were halfway through an eight-day backpacking loop in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, and had stopped to rest. “Let’s see what they are.” He skidded down to a cobble beach, whipped out a well-used snorkel and mask, and dove in naked. I followed more...
Fishing Pollutants, Montana Fly fishing
You may be doing more damage than you think. It’s a classic summer day on the water: the afternoon passes quietly, the only sounds are the riffling river and the sigh of a reel slipping line. This is what we live for as anglers in Montana—a day well-spent in this vast natural playground we call home. But these being some of the most pristine...
Grand Prismatic, Yellowstone thermals, Montana National Parks
From a local's perspective. Yellowstone National Park can be one of the most freeing and unique places in the world—if you know where to go.

Skiing a Bridger Range classic on the summer solstice. “Caroline? Caroline?! It’s 4:15 – time to go.” I heard him but couldn't quite make sense of what he was saying. The blanket of stars that had lulled me to sleep on the banks of Fairy Lake were fading, and I forced myself from the warmth of my sleeping bag and went to wake the others. “Want to...
Fishing advice for beginners, part I. Learning to fly fish in Montana is as intimidating as asking a girl to dance at your 6th-grade mixer. Most likely, at first pass, you’ll be met with shame, embarrassment, and even bodily injury. But there’s also the possibility, however remote, of success. That slim margin for success is what brought me to a...
