“Melting Snow ‘Round the Creek.”

Express yourself

Twenty-two-year-old Matilda “Silly” Tilly Mattox was enjoying a sunny off-season afternoon, taking advantage of the free time to catch up on one of her favorite activities: painting. She said it’s a form of expression akin to journaling for her, a pastime she also partakes in. But with art, her words take a visual form.

Blechta, Johnson win

Results came in around 8:20 p.m.. Steve Johnson was headed back to Big Sky after a fly tying session at the Warriors and Quiet Waters Ranch north of Bozeman. Sarah Blechta was at the Mountain Haven Salon.

ICE in Big Sky

On April 19, according to members of the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents suddenly appeared in Big Sky offering help with the high-speed chase that ended in a crash on Lone Mountain Trail. 

Give Big Gallatin Valley is all about benefiting local nonprofits while making donors feel appreciated for their goodwill. This photo from last year’s GBGV celebration in downtown Bozeman highlights a donor who chose to support ROC Wheels, an organization that specializes in wheelchair manufacturing, wheelchair distributions, youth programs and partnerships in order to provide wheelchairs to severely disabled children in developing countries.


The countdown is on for the fourth annual Give Big Gallatin Valley event, a 24-hour online and in-person donation celebration on May 3 and 4 put on by the Bozeman Area Community Foundation. The goal? To inspire 4,000 people to raise $1 million for charities from around the region.

Whatcha seeing out there?


Late April in the mountains—the last few days of skiing, the dreaded taxman and bears coming out of hibernation.

     The grizzlies have been out for a few weeks now and just the other day we spotted a black bear. Time to remove the winter bird feeders and suet blocks.
