City Of Destiny

Picked up some MacKenzie River pizza last night and spotted this nifty poster hanging on the wall.

Great Falls - City of Destiny!

Montana Reality

Rachell pointed out this interesting Craigslist ad:

We are looking for a experienced videographer for periodic shoots in central MT throughout the year for a successful reality TV show based in Montana…These are very challenging and very fun outdoor assignments. We shoot from trucks, snowmobiles, 4-wheelers, hike up mountainsides, etc. And we also need to capture depth of character, poignant moments and turn non-events into entertaining TV.

Hmmm…will the focus be on ranching? Outdoor sports? Extreme living?

GFPD Harlem Shake

CMR has done it, some folks at Western Art Week did it, a crew at UGF did it, and now member of the GFPD Honor Guard have done it – “it” being the Harlem Shake nonsense.

+10 points for having one of the K-9 pups participate (assuming it is)!

Just a hunch – but I think they might have created this video to show at the Policeman’s Ball that was held on Saturday night.

A visit and bite to eat in Carter!

Beautiful drive and awesome burger over in Square Butte!

Checking out Cascade!

A perfect day trip – how about Augusta?

Can’t forget Choteau!

Here’s some fun pix of the trips:
