Springs around Bozeman.

Soaking in hot springs, aka “hot-potting,” is a universal and timeless pleasure. Nothing beats the sensation of slipping into slightly stinging water, only to feel comfy and tranquil seconds later. Whether you’ve had a long day tracking wapiti, been at the office too long, or just have an afternoon off, these are the best spots in which to soak your bones.

River brews for the dog days. 

When floating the river in Montana, you need two things: watercraft and beer. (On occasion, a bathing suit as well.) Once you know where you’re going and how you’ll get there, shift your focus to beverages. Here are some tips to think about the next time you find yourself scratching your head in the booze aisle.

"Come on in – the water's fine."

First, think of your company. Who will be joining on this water excursion? If you’re hitting the water with a convoy of college crusaders, PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) is hard to beat. It’s a staple river beer, and for good reason – the Milwaukee classic comes in 24-packs at a cheap price and is only 144 calories with a low 4.74% ABV. If you need numbers, look no further.

An unorthodox excursion at Ousel.

On Friday night, I sat at a friend's house sipping drinks when a longtime buddy walked in. I hadn’t seen Dylan since winter, and even then it was only for a day. After a few beers and a night’s worth of bullshitting, he outlined a plan to hit Lower Ousel Falls the next morning. My only commitment fell in the afternoon—he needn’t say more. At 8am the following day, we were joined by friends Ethan, Austin, and Izaak and headed down the canyon.

The hype behind climbing lingo.

Like all outdoor sports, climbing has its own jargon, and the terminology can be overwhelming. If you’ve ever been around a climber or hung out at Spire, you know what I’m talking about. In a given exchange, enough superfluous vocabulary is thrown around that a non-climber might comprehend half, at most. If you’re new to the scene, good luck keeping up. But fear not—the loudmouth spouting every piece of slang in his lexicon was at one time just as confused as you, and just because he can talk the talk, doesn't mean he can send the rock.
