Finally! It is starting to feel like winter in Bozeman. Each year I hope to make my first ski turns in October but that didn't happen this year. October came and went. While early November brought some unusually cold weather and snow, the month passed with little additional snow and unusually warm weather. November is often the worst month of the year with hit or miss ski conditions and increasingly muddy and icy trails that make hiking and biking no fun.

Where will this path take you?
With all of my enthusiasm for travel and outdoor adventure, you’d think I’d have a bucket list lined up and ready to tackle. In reality, I’m not a big fan of the concept. If someone asks me what's on my bucket list I respond, "Everything." Who doesn't want to see and do it all in a lifetime?
