Christmas Tea at The Old Flynn Ranch,Missoula Montana was one of the big highlights for our family. In the hustle and bustle of people working with all different schedule and being unable to get together, it was a great fortunate that we were able to book the tea table,with the majority of my daughters attending. What a great drive up to this beautiful old brick architectural home. Upon entering, it was like stepping back into Victorian times.The room was very cozy, with the heat from the old belly stove , the elegant tea service on the beautiful embroidered table cloths, the elaborate real Christmas tree resting peacefully in the beautiful bay window, ornate portraits of the original owners hanging elegantly over the piano,the pleasant conversations from people sitting at the other tables. It brought a flood of conversations between my daughters and I, mainly how much similar the home reminded me so much of the sandstone home I lived in Scotland.The Tea was simply delicious,along with wonderful decorated sandwiches,oeurduves and delightful desserts. The hostess were always making sure our tea pot was kept filled. The lady of the house Maureen was so kind to let us know some history of the place, n permitting us to see the elegant rooms upstairs. It was one of the best relaxing nights that my daughters and I had. And the cost just a mere $10. The best! A big "THANK YOU" to all the family for opening this ornate home to the public. We hope to be back next year.!

GREAT PARTY GREAT TIME, HOLLOWEEN ROCKS AND ROLLS
This is a musical event that started in 2000 November and lots and lots of children have participated in it since then presenting music, dances, poems, etc. A dance class is featured at 11 and one or more adult performers present interactive music -- singing, clapping, dancing. Magic tricks, song learning, rhythmic improvisation (instruments provided) spice up this popular event lasting 90 minutes. Only around 20 children are admitted to keep participation and interaction quality at an optimum, meaningful level. Energetic but not crowded is the event's motto. I highly recommend this event if your child is aged 1 - 10. Children of all abilities are welcome.
Lot's of blue-winged olives out around mid-day. Plenty of trout rising in the slough downstream of the parking lot. Lovely fall colors right now, too. We saw four other anglers and what appeared to be a guided boat anchored up in the eddy at the bottom of the slough. Fish were still working when we left around 5:00.
Referring herein to candidate Michael Hyde. Posted on Facebook regarding John Engen : My gods....he held his (five-year-old?) son dying of cancer....and our acting mayor (yes, that is a theatrical reference) had the evil gall to refer to soccer moms who don't want their sons and daughters playing on "weedy" soccer fields as justification for continued spraying of pesticides (this after Michael's plea to stop the maddness). When I start to feel sorry for this great pretender mayor...I just have to bring myself back to the reality that functional evil DOES wear a sweater vest and "lead" a city of supposed enlightenment. George W. Bush has nothing on this man.
grteat hike. moderately hard because of the uphill climb. worth the trip.
Great brew selection. Food okay.
Awesome use of local ingredients and chef pushes the palates of his customers with some unusual seasonal menu options.
one of our favorite campsites in glacier. some of the sites are on the creek. very quiet. no water, but trash service and a bear box if you need it.
this is a great spot if you get on of the lake sites, otherwise you get to camp on the road with all of its traffic or inbetween the road and lake where all of the sites are very close to each other. we will not go back there
Pretty much snow free as of Memorial Day weekend. Just a few minor patches near the summit.
Love the GYROS!!! Love the Greek FRYS!!! I stop here to eat everytime I get to missoula.
Great food great atmosphere love the Tappas
SNOW REPORT FOR SUNDAY, APRIL 28th:
This is a public observation from missoulaavalanche.org for Friday, April 19th for the north central Bitterroots. 0-3 inches new snow.
"Remote trigger large wind slab on east/southeast-facing slope in Bass Creek drainage. New snow poorly bonded to old sun/wind crust layers. Long varied crown of slide along beak in slope, width approx. 1500′. Slide traveled downhill about 600′ Glade and trees skiing was good above 7000′ with varied spring snow conditions ranging from zipper crusts to crud."
At first I was really excited about Romaines, such a great concept. After eating there a handful of times I am no longer a fan. The owner is always there and he's not friendly, almost comes across as he doesn't want you there, its bizarre. Not to mention when I went to nurse my child, the owner seemed deeply offended. I can pay $10.00 for a salad but I can't nurse my child, in the back corner while using a nursing cover without getting "the look?" I'll never eat there again. Romaines won't last a year. Go to the Good Food Store if you want a salad.
SNOW REPORT FOR SUNDAY, APRIL 14TH:
Closed for the season.
Snowbowl closed a week early this season because warm March weather melted enough snow to make coverage marginal. Of course, a winter storm came the week after. Bona fide face shots available today for those willing to hike for their turns, and plenty of snow to ski down to the parking lot. Should be very, very, very good again on Monday—as in thigh deep on the upper mountain.
