Now in Montana, there's a...
Tobacco Roots Mountains, Montana
Hiking the Tobacco Roots. As a young boy, I was fortunate to have parents who appreciated the outdoor opportunities Bozeman had to offer. I can still picture an early trip up the rough and dusty road of Hyalite Canyon to get my first glimpse of the mountains that have been dominating my life for years. Southwest Montana has given me a lifetime of...
Horsepacking, True Tales, River crossing
A wilderness river-crossing gone wrong. The river rushes madly, its water, churning and muddy due to the sudden spike in temperature of the last two days.

Story Under the Stars is back. The plane bore down on Cary Grant as the sound of whirling propellers filled the air. It got closer and louder, but at the last second, Grant dodged the diving crop-duster as it flew past. I turned around, half-expecting to see its rudder disappearing into the night sky. I saw trees and stars, but no plane. I...
