Welcome To Livingston, MT

So it has been a whirlwind few months dealing with a home purchase, moving, getting a whole new routine going, having a longer commute, and finally having winter descend upon us....

Steph looking out on the Yellowstone River not far from our new home. This was on Friday last week and it was about 15 degrees out and obviously had snowed. Livingston Peak and the Absaroka Range are in the distance.

My parents came to visit as well this past week, unfortunately in the midst of a deep freeze! It was 9 degrees out Friday night I think. Snowed a bunch. I had planned all sorts of good hiking and two wheeling, but it wasn't possible. We made the best of it. Here we are at Neptune's Brewery, a totally sweet local spot with great beers and a good food. If you are in town and need a beverage, check it out. Open 4-8pm daily.

We managed to get into Yellowstone National Park on Sunday for a short hike before adjourning to Chico Hot Springs for a soak and an excellent meal. A local institution, Chico is not to be missed.
