My heart is always half here and half there.
It’s a bit like being in two places at once…
After thirteen years, I’ve given up trying to feel any differently.
It. Just. Is.
This is Try # 53,584 of me using my big girl camera as a Point and Shoot. I found later that I got this one shot I could actually use and even then the focus was on the truck not on the layers of mountains.
I won’t elaborate on how much I miss this place and its people with all my heart. There are no words – so I won’t even try.
Life in the summer revolves around these mountains and this lake.
Mountains – for hiking, mountain biking, huckleberry picking and horse-back riding.
Lake – for boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, relaxing…You know, all that normal lake stuff.
The mile long, “Long Bridge” as seen from the lake.
I know, it’s an ugly…
…hell hole of a place.

Life in winter revolves around these mountains and this ski hill.

The mountains for hunting and snowmobiling.
The ski hill…well, for skiing!
(There are those that do ice fish the lake – though it’s not nearly as popular of a sport as it is out here in the Mid-West…Having a ski hill might have something to do with it.)

Love ya more than smoky August skies…and mountains!
