A new member of Scott Space

Welcome our new pack member, Zoe! Isn’t she adorable? She’s twelve weeks old and a bundle of energy. Zoe loves tug of war, chasing balls, digging and playing in the water.

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…

Operation Strong Soul

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know Missoula and a bunch of other cities and towns in Montana flooded this spring. It wasn’t surprising–record snowpack plus a long, wet spring leads to flooding. I’ve previously written about the sandbagging operations, those are all wrapped up. What isn’t wrapped up? The recovery. Like most disaster…
