Springtime in the Montana Mountains
After long months of winter in Montana the first signs of spring are always refreshing, especially in the higher altitudes where winter starts early in the fall and ends late in the spring. May and June are also our rainy months which along with some sunshine help to norish the grass and flowers.
Springtime in the mountains is a perfect time to enjoy a hike in our scenic areas. What makes it special are the beautiful meadow flowers and the abundance of green meadows. It's hard to take in all of the beautiful surroundings while walking, so at times it's a good idea to just stretch out in the lush grass and take in all the amazing views that Montana has to offer.
Near the lodge a crop of buttercups are growing on the southern slope of the cliff. In the higher elevations the Indian paintbrush is spotted long into the summer season. Once these flowers are seen in the various areas around the ranch we know that spring has arrived!
