Where in the World is AM now?

Believe it or not, Las Vegas. Anyone who knows me also knows Vegas is not my kind of place. Loud, smoky, too many people, too much crime, etc. But there was a book marketing conference, so off we went. Yes, the Amazing Sleeping Man went too, which is even more surprising than me going there….

Hiking Chaffin Butte

We usually hike the Bitterroot Mountains. With fall bringing cooler temperatures, we can hike the Sapphire Mountains across the valley and enjoy seeing them in all their glory. Chaffin Butte is very short but steep and strenuous. The trail is rocky and doesn’t have nearly enough switchbacks; my hiking poles came in very handy on the…

Hiking the Bear Creek Overlook

The Amazing Sleeping Man had a tough week at work, but he still wanted to go hiking this week. So, I picked the Bear Creek Overlook. We hike Bear Creek itself a couple of times a year, but we’ve never done the overlook. That was a mistake–it’s beautiful! Especially in fall, when the larch are…
