Seen along the trail
. . . in Bozeman, Montana yesterday. The day before we visited Music Villa on Main Street:
I would really like to live in Bozeman, Montana in the summers. Like Santa Barbara, California, it is a university town that has a vibrant and integrated downtown center that accommodates pedestrians, gorgeous surrounding mountains, and a casual, outdoor-oriented lifestyle. Unlike Santa Barbara, it is no place to winter unless you're a snowbunny.
Now we're moving on to Washington State.
UPDATE: While in Bozeman, we visited the Bozeman Hot Springs, one of my favorite places on earth in which to chill and broil courtesy of geothermal energy. Also had Father's Day dinner at The Garage--good food. Of course we also dined at Burger Bob's and cruised the shops on Main Street, including Country Bookshelf, one of my favorite independent bookstores. I love Bozeman. (And I was not paid or given free stuff to endorse these lovely businesses.)
