Then I repent.
And hop into the car and drive to where the skies are big and blue, where the mountains tower above me. As I drive I roll down the windows and inhale the fresh pine smell and the sweet scent of wild flowers. It's usually chilly and rarely too hot. The only down side I can find are the irritating mosquitoes or painful horseflies... but I can deal with those.
There are lots of Mountain Bluebirds to be found.
And Burrowing Owls.
There is plenty of wind for kite flying.
You can watch the storms roll in for miles.
The scenery and mountains will take your breath away.(This is my first panoramic shot...)
You can hike tall mountains or smaller hills.
Who wouldn't want this view out of their kitchen window?
There's always time to play cards and be silly!
And many opportunities to pick a wildflower boquet for your loved one's birthday!
Do you have your heart set on riding bikes? NO PROBLEM!!! We can find you a trail!
I find many opportunities for fulfilling my obsession of photographing clouds in Big Sky Country.
If this hasn't convinced you, that's okay. I like it better when there's less people there!
