Madison Range, Montana Adventure
What lies just out of sight in the wild? My husband and I had been dirt-bagging it out of our SUV for the past few weeks, road-tripping around southwest Montana. The name of the game was adventure, and so far we were doing a hell of a good job of playing it. We'd already hit Yellowstone, killed it fly fishing six different rivers, and hiked up...

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.

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...
