Posted by Kali Gillette on Feb 21, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Yellowstone National Park is just a stone’s throw from Bozeman, and seeing it in its winter glory is something special. Snowshoeing is one of the most intimate ways of experiencing the natural beauty, and it’s an easy activity for any age and ability.

Scenic Drive: Highway 89 Through Niehart

Posted by Kali Gillette on Sep 20, 2018 7:00:00 AM
