Valley Creek, Montana

Sadly, this is the last post from Montana.  I can’t tell you how much I enjoy being there.  Well, certainly between the months of May and September.  It’s a bit chilly the other months of the year!

These photos were taken in Valley Creek, an area roughly 20-30 minutes outside of Billings.  When my Better Half was growing up, his family owned pasture land in Valley Creek where many, many heads of cattle grazed.

Valley Creek Photo #1.  These deer were hanging out by the creek in front of an old, abandoned barn.

Valley Creek Photo #2.  I loved the way this cow was grazing right where the rolling foothills met the big, blue sky.

Valley Creek Photo #3.  One last log cabin photo, this one beyond acres of still green wheat

  1. The third shot is my favorite, I love how lonely and desolate it feels with the deep foreground of wheat. It makes me want to look closer, but I can’t! I love it when a photo does that to me. Love the cow silhouette, too!

  2. Gorgeous! My husband lived in Montana for a couple of years and I am constantly hearing stories about the landscape and the animals – love seeing real pics!
    …and just realized you are on Twitter, also, my dear! I will hop on and follow you right now 🙂

    • Oh, it is soooo beautiful! What part of the state did your hubby live?

      • Billings(?), maybe? I think he traveled around as well.

      • Then the sights on my blog should look pretty familiar as Scott grew up just outside of Billings on his family’s farm and his Mom and Sister live there now. 🙂 Small world!

      • Yep, small world indeed! When I told him I’d answered you here, he also reminded me that he lived in Mazoola too 🙂

      • That’s awesome! You are in Canada, right? A bit outside of Toronto? I’m headed there for work next week and am sooooo excited to see it!

      • Yep, right outside of T.O! Oh, there are so many lovely sights to see, even if you’re here on a short trip! There’s a world class, limited timed Picasso exhibit on at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) that I’ll be checking out in mid-August….I’ve heard raves…you might want to take a look 🙂

      • If the weather is nice, I’ll be outside as much as I can after my meetings, so I’ll probably miss the Picasso exhibit. But that sure is something I’d love to do if I had more time. Or if Mother Nature isn’t going to be nice while I’m there. 🙂

  3. That first picture is crazy! With the rocks in the background! Very pretty! 🙂

    • Oh, yeah, those are the bluffs that are all over that part of Montana as you start to approach mountains!
