We have these threads:
summer things to do and see in Missoula
stuff to do in Missoula in October
entertaining in march
stuff for kids in missoula
(and this paul's Make It Missoula blog post - 20 things for kids visiting missoula)

And yet, those excellent suggestions are not as much about getting out in nature in Western Montana.

Today, Paul and I got out of the house, took a drive and went to a lovely, moist, pristine little lake and trail in the foothills. My pictures don't do it justice, though I want to share any way. Such a MUCH needed change of pace!

Plus, I want to hear about more of these places from folks!
