scenes from helena, montana

October 10, 2011

Helena, Montana. Wide open spaces, warm with smiles, vast, historic. I loved spending my weekend here. I am extremely fortunate to be able to travel as part of my job and I look forward to these opportunities to explore strange corners of the country and reflect on the work I do.

I only wish I could have captured the mountains and the sky in these photos. Honestly, the big sky cliche? True. True! Something about the way the land, hills, and mountains stretch out and roll makes the sky and the clouds seem huge, convex, rolling. Here are some pictures of my weekend. Hope you enjoy!

I remember that area from visiting in my childhood. My family was from there and we went back to see my great-aunts, uncles and even my great-grandmother. So beautiful! The one thing that stands out in my mind from the trip was standing near a mud puddle. Hundreds of colorful butterflies had landed along it to get a drink because the surrounding area was so dry. They were incredible colors! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many butterflies and colors of butterflies since.
