National Parks: Yellowstone versus Glacier

Posted by Kali Gillette on Jun 5, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Our National Park System is nothing short of phenomenal. These vast swaths of land preserved for their natural wonders are something everyone should experience. Montana has a total of nine National Park service areas, but the two most famous, Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park, are also the most different.

Glacier’s tall, jutting mountains, massive moving glaciers, and mountain lakes are a vast contrast to Yellowstone’s wide open spaces, big rivers, simmering hot pots and shooting geysers.

Yet, the two can’t be compared; each has its own beauty and intrigue.

Spring Wildlife Watching in Yellowstone National Park

Posted by Kali Gillette on May 15, 2019 8:00:00 AM

One of the highlights of visiting Yellowstone National Park is watching the wildlife move about in their natural setting. Spring is especially magical with newborns playing alongside their moms, giddy with new life. The park is less crowded in the spring, which makes it a nice time to leisurely make your way through. You’ll definitely see the more common animals such as bison and elk; but if you’re diligent, (and an early riser) you have a good chance of seeing bear, moose and even the elusive wolf. Stop at the local visitor center to find out where the most recent activity is taking place.

Soaking it Up; Bozeman Hot Springs

Posted by Kali Gillette on Apr 24, 2019 8:00:00 AM

There’s nothing like a good long soak in a natural hot springs. While it’s unquestionably relaxing, the benefits go beyond simply feeling good, the minerals contained in the water have many healing properties. Calcium and sodium bicarbonate boost circulation, and silica softens dry and rough skin. The heat can also temporarily block pain receptors and offer some relief from pain. Add in a cold plunge, and you’ve increased the health benefits even more. The cold plunge is a great exercise for blood vessels, nourishing your skin and organs with extra oxygen. The hot and cold plunge together is also a great stress reliever; when the body temperature rises then cools, it’s easier to relax and get a deeper sleep.

Intrigued? We have the perfect spot to start soaking it all up.

Stacey Herries is much more than an aspiring artist. Her day job as a high school art teacher inspires teenagers to be creative, while simultaneously her own artwork is flying out of galleries. I sat with her in her studio to hear her story. Her energy is as infectious as her artwork; bright, colorful and cheerful. She continued to work as we talked. Her process is fascinating and her drive is impressive!
