On Monday, we drove from our home, approximately 30 miles NE of Seattle, to Whitefish, Montana. We have been staying here since Monday night because Trish, Hans & Phil are playing at a variety of venues here in the area. Tonight is their last gig.
The reception to THP has been quite good. Not only are THP great musicians and a lot of fun to listen to, but there is a serious dearth of local live music in the area. That’s why John Simpson, of Simpson Motors, has decided to sponsor a series of acts for the area. He just recently moved here from Seattle, and was missing being able to listen to great music.
We are staying in a beautiful one bedroom condo at Kintla Lodge on Big Mountain, and it’s just been breathtakingly beautiful. Well, if you discount the fact that I had to stay inside all day every day working. That’s the advantage/disadvantage of being able to work from anywhere.
Last evening, after my final call of the day, we took the gondola all the way up to the top of the Mountain, and could see the Canadian Rockies, as well as the mountains in Glacier National park.
Today we had hoped to drive out to Glacier National Park, but we slept in, and then when we did wake up, it was raining.
Anyway, I’m glad I finally made it to Montana. It’s just gorgeous here, and the people have been very friendly. I’ve been told it’s because it’s a resort community and everyone’s relaxed. For whatever reason, it’s a real privilege to have had this experience, and I’ll be dreaming about these mountains and lakes for a long time to come.
