I love living in the mountains. Everyone has their own region that they love being as opposed to all others. For me that is the mountains. Although the ranges have changed over the years, being able to drive up into the Pine Trees whenever I want to is very nice. This past weekend I drove up into Hyalite Canyon which is one of my favorite places to go outside Bozeman.
The light was not ideal. Nor was there any really great clouds. But there was enough to go hiking up to the Grotto to play around with the ice. I think I may have gone a little late in the year because the rock cliffs were not nearly as covered as they had been in the past. It was still pretty cool to people climbing up the ice walls.
