Montana Road Trippin’


OK, so this is my new favoritest thing in the whole world. Dia and Jewels from the Montana Road Trippin’ Podcast. I just want to shout their praises from the roof top of every building everywhere, everyone I run into I ask if they listen to podcasts and then I tell them well they should start haha with this great one: Montana Road Trippin’ 


A Bear in Glacier National Park

These girls are not only funny but they are passionate and best of all informative. Not only do I learn history about one of my all time favorite places, but I learn important tips like how to actually use my bear spray should I ever encounter a live bear when walking/running/hiking in the woods, which is amazing possibly that I haven’t really considering how much time I spend in bear country.

A Bear on the edge of Glacier National Park one morning on my way to school.

The funniest thing to me is how much they talk about rattlesnakes. I have never encountered a rattle snake I have to say.

Of course the list got a little longer then ten and I had to have a separate list for traveling in my car, especially when I crossed Marias over 300 times and wouldn’t you know the only time I got stuck, I had nothing. (haha- typical Montana story)
